I don't really like Alex Ross's work for usage of normal comics. It seems, dare I say it, out of the normal style for comics.

Well, I'd say Jim Lee is up there.

Jim Lee's Batman is real textbook and lacking of drama which Bats has at his disposal. Andy Kubert does it pretty good.

Well my angst was directed at the fact that you PUT Adams third, when he is CLEARLY the quintessential Batman artist of all-time! Without Neal Adams, we don't even have the Batman of today, so its dubious to place anyone else above him.

Ross? come on, the guy has barely drawn Batman, and when he does, he's always fat, and his costume looks like it hasn't been washed in decades. Too much drama in Ross art for me, and not enough history with Batman, to even consider him a Batman artist.

Now, Marshall Rogers...THERE was a 'Batartist' extrodinaire...and what about Jim Aparo???? One of the all-timers as well....Dick Giordano???

I just love the realistic images Ross does, but yeah I know without Neal Adams there wouldn't be the cool batman of today. I was going to put Neal in the #2 spot, but I don't know I just love Brian Bollands art so much. And seriously I was insane for not mentioning Marshal Rogers, Timm Sale or Jim Apalo. And while I'm at it, I might as well mention Bob Kane for without him and Bill Finger Batman wouldn't be born.

Jim Lee and Alex Maleev. I also like J.H Williams' Batman, but there isn't a lot of that.
