I'll probably just select one from each of my regular monthlies, Batman and Batman & Robin.

For Batman, it's probably a tossup between Riddler and Bane. I've had my fill of Joker and Penguin stories. Plus it's Snyder and Tomasi. I trust those guys more than the others.

For Batman & Robin, it's probably Ras Al Ghul or Two-Face. Both are written by James Tynion, who I think is pretty decent.

Anyway, curious what you guys are thinking after looking at these creative teams.

Dang it. Meant to post in the Batman forum.

Just ask a mod to move it, if any are on.

Anyway, I'll probably check out whatever ones sound the most interesting after the fact. Riddler is my fav Bat villain so I'd like to read his story, but I'm not really a big Snyder fan...

  • Riddler
  • Bane
  • Two-Face
  • Court of Owls
  • Ra's al Ghul and the League of Assassins

And maybe Joker, I'm iffy on that since I don't know how good a writer Andy Kubert is.

At least Joker, Riddler, Bane, Penguin, Two-Face, Ra's Al Ghul, Court of Owls, and Killer Croc. Might get more, though.

Two-face is written by Tomasi,and it's part of his next arc,Riddler is co-written by Snyder,the other guy is Ray Fawkes.

for me it's

Two-face

Bane

Ra's

Clayface

Poison Ivy

Croc

Deadshot(yeah it's actually a JLA book)

Maybe:

Joker(to sample Kubert's writing since he's also gonna write the Damian series)

Penguin

Scarecrow(since it's part of Arkham War)

Court of Owls(Tynion)

Riddler(depends on the reviews/feedback)

I think the ones I'm most interested in are Riddler, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy and maybe Jokers Daughter.

I was interested in the Killer Croc issue, but knowing that it only exists because the Batwoman team was forced to abandon their own Killer Croc story has kind of put me off getting it.
