Who is your favorite Batman artists? There have been several over the years doing Batman, Detective, Dark Knight, etc.

My faves are:

David Finch
Tony S. Daniel
Breyfogle
Tom Mandrake
Jim Aparo

I think my fave has to be Aparo. He didn't do anything fancy or try to overdo anything but still makes the comic appealing to the reader art-wise. Check out a couple examples of Aparo's nice Batman work below...





The breaking of the Bat!


And then there's this great yet sad scene done by Aparo. He really did a good job of facial emotions on Batman. You can see the saddness in Batman here.

I talk to people at the comic shop about artists and mention Aparo. They say he's okay but his work looks pretty generic and old. I love his work and how he draws Batman's eyes. Not sure why but I think they look cool.

Jim Aparo was THE Batman artist of my youth.
I also like Jim Lee, Norm Breyfogle, Irv Novick and Frank Quitely's work on the Dark Knight Detective.

Neal Adams has blown it for me with his p155 poor Batman Odyssey.

It may be generic and old but it's also iconic.

Neal Adams, Jim Aparo, Irv Novick, Marshall Rogers and Paul Gulacy. Jim Lee's run on the original "Hush" arc deserves serious respect too.

I thought I was the only one who loved Jim Aparo on Batman.

I also really like Kelley Jones' Batman. I'll throw him a mention.

I love Mignola's take on Batman, and Frank Miller's as well

Neal Adams all the way.

Gene Colan, Marshall Rogers, and Paul Gulacy bringing up the rear.

I think Norm Breyfogle is my favorite. He had such a unique style.

Dick Sprang of course.



Closely followed by Infantino who created the new look Batman



Aparo is the artist I'm most familiar with since he drew Batman when I was reading him.

Adams. eh.
