    Default Favorite Batman Artist

    I'm sure this thread has existed before but it's still a great topic!

    Who are some of your favorite Batman artists? I know there are a lot of good ones but who does your mind go to when you think of the Batman?

    Kelley Jones and Bruce Timm are my favorites

    Capullo is a favorite too. He reminds me of Frank Miller mixed with Bruce Timm somehow.

    FRIEND! Completely agree. I bought all of To's issues of the current Nightwing, and am incredibly bummed that he appears to not be coming back.

    Although I'm only familiar with his work from drawing covers and he never drew Batman or Detective (at least I don't think he did) I think Michael Turner's Batman was pretty excellent.

    I could not stand it when Jones was penciling Batman.

    I really liked Cameron Stewart and Frank Quitely during Morrison's run,
    Capullo is amazing,
    yet somehow the "lifetime award" would go to D.Cooke or D.Mazzucchelli

    (can't stand Jim Lee's or Burnham's art)
