In my opinion,

1. Batman. The best stories, imo. Snyder is awesome, though people will disagree with me on that. Greg Capullo is one of my favorite Batman artists ever

2. Batman and Robin. Fantastic character depth and relationships. Damian! It has been doing a great job with the recent team-up issues.

3. Batwoman: Hydrology was amazing. The other two arcs weren't as good, but still amazing. Great art. Sad that the creative team is leaving

4. Nightwing: Traps and Trapezes was awesome. It slows down in the middle but has picked it up as of late.

5. Batgirl: Loved it in the beginning, and has sort of dropped. It later picks up again.

6. Detective Comics: bad in the beginning. Has been pretty good lately

7. Red Hood and the Outlaws: I read it when Scott Lobdell and Kenneth Rocafort (amazing) did it. Not fond of the new artist, which mainly why I don't like it anymore

8. The Dark Knight: just ehh...

9. Teen Titans: bad. I love Tim Drake but the designs are terrible and the storyline is just so-so

The top 5 are worth reading, the rest: not so much.

Ehhh, I don't really think the Bat family books are anything spectacular lately to be honest. I guess I'd have to say the best is Nightwing though.

I should probably explain why I'm asking.

I currently follow Batman and Detective Comics and am considering adding one or two more Bat family books so was wondering which ones were worth picking up.

For the past few months Detective Comics has been the best imo.

This and Nightwing has been better than the main title as well.

Get Nightwing and Batman/Superman

Detective comics has been winning me over

#9 Posted by Jake Fury (18928 posts) - - Show Bio

Agreed, Detective is very good. I've actually really liked RHATO now that Tynion IV seems to be getting into a groove.

Batman and Detective comics.

@dm225:

I would recommend Batwoman.

Agreed. About the only thing I read with any regularity is Batman Beyond.

Really digging the Red Hood books. They're just a little different.

#16 Posted by Tohoma (1508 posts) - - Show Bio

Lol no votes for Teen Titans.

#17 Posted by The_Tree (7718 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman and Robin has been consistently great throughout, but I'm currently enjoying Batman's Zero Year story arc the most.

@tohoma: right? It's just that it doesn't really... you know?

It was a hard choice between batman, batman & robin, and nightwing (the only batbooks i've read). I am planning on starting with batwoman and batgirl because of the good reviews i've heard from other viners

Batwoman is my favorite. But I don't really consider it a Bat-Family book. All of the other books are mediocre. They very regularly alternate from good to "Meh".

A bit unfair...should remove the main Bat title...would make a better vote.

Detective Comics. Snyder's Batman has been really decreasing in quality ever since it started, while it's been the very opposite with 'Tec.
