I particulary like Capullo's Batman.
The dark tone,the shadows everything mends together perfect.

After that Tony Daniel(his current colors don't fit batman well).

Jim lee's batman is too exposed.Batman should feel like a shadow.

@sog7dc: My first batman comic was Hush(which ironically is his best work).But still i feel his art doesn't fit batman.He likes to play with lights not shadows.

@squalleon:

I tend to agree. its beautiful but batman should be darker. and I made the mistake a while ago of pickingup all star batman instead of hush...I regret it so much

I will say that greg needs to draw other characters better. there's an issue of batman where bruce looks awesome but everyone else on the page looks anorexic and goofy

@lifeofvibe: Currently i think he is.The other bat-titles aren't as good as the main one.Also Capullo has great imagination.You see it at his covers.
While Lee's covers are the so forgetable.

From these 4, Capullo , but it wasn't an easy decision...

Capullo depicts Batman with a certain vulnerability that I like.

Favorite's a tie between Jim Lee and Tony Daniel.

I quite like Turner's Batman too. Capullo's is alright, his comes across as a little shorter/stockier than I'd like.

Love the way Capullo depicts the suit as armor and as a price of advanced technology while still making Bruce look muscular and strong in it. The others, though they look great, look like common fabric to me

Capullo's Batman really encompasses the whole essence of the character. He wins this one.

Capullo's Batman is perfect IMO. He does dark and gritty better than most.

Jim Lee's pretty good if you don't mind every character having the same face and body type :P

I agree... *administers secret art school high-five*
