Morrison though both are good.

They both have there styles but I would pick Morrison.

#3 Posted by SOG7dc (6713 posts) - - Show Bio

i enjoy both. they both have different goals with their writing of the character. While morrison aims to develop characters and storylines i think Snyder aims to tell a compelling horror story

I think I enjoyed Snyder's work better as his Batman just seemed more detective than super hero. The only issue is there were a lot of BS in the court of owls arc. I don't understand how batman gets almost beaten to death by one talon, and then, while still injured, takes on like five at the same time.

I loved Morrisons work up until Batman Inc. I never warmed up to it, honestly. Always thought it was too similar to X-Corp from his work on New X-Men. But I won't deny it's great story telling. I went with Morrison because he tells a great story from beginning, middle, and end. Snyder usually does but then there are times where he doesn't.

Voted Morrison, but I like Snyder's stories. They're a bit more down to earth.

Snyder's run has the potential to reach Morrison's level but it's not there yet imo

I prefer Morrison's run overall but Snyder's run is still fantastic.

I was hoping Geoff Johns would be on the poll.

Scott is doing a fantastic job! By the time he is done he will be the better writer.

Snyder's is more horrorish (just made that word up. Deal with it b*tch) just like

And I enjoy horror in comics. I love horror story's themselves, always found them interesting. So I went Snyder.

Love Morrison but Snyder writes Batman as though he is Batman. Horrific and Dark but with a sense of Hope.

Man. Morrison is my favorite Batman writer, plus he wrote the definitive Superman story. I love that bald headed bastard.

I don't get it, Morrison's Batman's sense of hope is far greater than Snyder's, Snyder's Batman actually lost hope many times. And I've never found Snyder's Batman dark or horrific (I've read till the the DoTF arc), instead Morrison's Batman was dark and horrific, Snyder's Batman is a man in a Bat costume.

@graysonmatter: Btw when I was talking about Snyder's New 52 run, not Black Mirror and Grayson Batman stuffs, haven't read those.

Amazingly Snyder is giving the good fight.

But snyder voters dont talk as much as Morrison fans.

I finally decided to vote snyder mostly because of the Black Mirror. It was BY FAR the best Dick Grayson batman story. Way better than morrisons batman & robin (but i loved that too). The story has all for a great batman story, great detective work, a fantastic cool idea with the dealer, an AMAZING new villain in Jim Gordons son an a amazing new version of the joker
