    This is my favorite decade too as I started out reading Spanish reprints that had Don Newton and Gene Colan alternating on both books, and I have an affinity for the 70's too as it was the decade that brought him back to his roots.

    My favorite is the 90`s. We got Long Halloween which is my favorite bat book and that is when the all the side characters started to flourish. Dixon had a great handle on everyone.

    My favorite period ever though is the Morrison era. His run truly made the entire line feel fresh. My favorite version of Bruce, Batman and Robin(favorite comic and favorite Dynamic Duo), Miller Batgirl, Black Mirror, Red Robin and the intro to Damien. Never have I been so interested in the entire line.

    Are the 60s considered a "dud" decade for Batman comics? I thought the New Look revival was well received.

    I think 1960s got hurt by the comics seeming to mimic the TV show somewhat later in the decade.

    (The introduction of Barbara Gordon as Batgirl was a good thing, though.)

    All decades prior to 1970-1979 still have less than ten votes each.

    Voted for the 90s and surprised its number one. I heard so much criticism for gimmicks in that decade but it had really good stories.
