    Default Who Should Write Batman After Tom King?

    Which comic book writer do you think should take the helms of the Batman franchise after Tom King finishes his run on the title?

    Who's currently writing the best story about any member of the Batman family in any Batman family title that's also not writing Justice League, Superman, or Batman?

    Currently ? Lobdell in Red Hood and the Outlaws.

    By "currently" you mean "now" or when King's run is over? The latter is a little problematic because it would mean that you'd take away a writer of a celebrated run, or?
    And both options are restrictive in the sense that there are good writers who have proven themselves in the past but aren't currently writing any batfam title.

    I've also read that the current Batgirl is promising.

    If we move writers from books, I want Warren Ellis in a batbook. I'm just a diehard fan, I admit it. But eh, I had to say it.

    Now, more seriously.
    For when King ends his run, I'm guessing we will have a new writer in DC hired for that book alone. In a year and half. We may even not know that writer as someone with some fame yet.
    This is a signature. It has letters on it, and those letters form words. Words like these. I will not quote anything because I'm uninspired but, I read a lot: I could!

    And this is my Tumblr. Sometimes I post stuff there.

    Shouldn't that be who at DC has written the best Batman that's not currently on.....

    Williamson, priest or Orlando get my vote.

    Currently I mean now. Right now, because we don't know who will be the best in the future.
    I want someone who's familiar with the workings of the Batman family.
    The last Batman writers came from Dick Grayson writers. Tom King from Grayson, Snyder from Black Mirror, and Tony Daniel from Battle for The Cowl.
    ...I should've just saved some words and say the last best writer to write Dick Grayson.

    Christopher Priest.

    I can see them giving it to Bendis.

    That's the only Batman-Family title (in fact, the only regular DC Universe book) I'm currently buying for what that's worth.

    I think it SHOULD be Priest.

    I think this is correct. Unless Bendis decides he wants to be Quirky and does All-New All-Different Batman, and leaves the main title (and Detective) open.

    My shortlist would probably be:

    Tom Taylor
    Charles Soule
    Jeff Lemire
    James Tynion

    I would definitely be down for Taylor on a Batman book, if not the main one.

    But outside Injustice Marvel seems to be the one that snags him for solo books...
