I really liked Eduardo Risso's take:

I like:

Tony Daniels (Although his writing isn't brilliant his art is outstanding)

JH Williams III

I also like some that have been mentioned like: Jim Lee (one of my favourite artists), Greg Capullo and Alex Ross (Is there anything he does bad? If so I haven't seen it). Not a fan on Mignola's Batman art, love him on Hellboy just personally don't think it suits Batman

Andy Kubert is my favorite.

Closely followed by David Finch, and then Jim Lee.

This style reminds me of Frank Millers DKR, at least this one pictures does.

Maybe a little...but Risso is a lot better than Miller.

I will check him out. Miller stuff really is hit and miss. What are some good graphic novels of Risso I should start with?

@PortlandsBatman:

Batman graphic novels? Broken City and Knight of Vengeance. Don't remember him doing anything else.
Other stuff? Everything else.

Also at least one issue of Black and White.

Of couse part of "everything else" one should check out Risso's work on 100 Bullets. Primo!

From there you will have to start digging through his European work particulary with Carlos Trillo.

Jim Lee no doubt, and Alex Ross is good but he draws the metaphoric/old-fashioned carticures of the superheroes.

Jim Lee is one of the most phenomenally talented artist around. Tony Daniel's BFTC covers are my favorite covers, but Lee did awesome interiors. Never was a fan of the bluer cowl look, either. Capullo's style works for the surrealist introspection of Snyder's Batman. I respect Alex Ross, but I do not like his style at all. He makes spandex and people look like...spandex and people. Ew, realism.

I understand what you mean about Alex Ross, I happen to like it, but to each their own. And I think you hit the nail on the head saying that Capullo's style fits with Snyder's writting, going back and reading Gates of Gotham, it feels like something is missing with Cupullo not doing the art.

Well that is his and Azzarello's magnum opus and my all time favorite series, so I'd recommend it the most too. Jonny Double and Spaceman aren't half bad either :p

Going to read Vampire Boy soon and hopefully Borderline too :D

Gotta love how Greg Cap is treating Batman

#19 Posted by gotwillpower (679 posts) - - Show Bio

Jim Lee? Greg Capullo? I can't decide!

Best cape goes to Todd McFarlane.

Among others already mentioned, I also like Dustin Nguyen.

Neal Adams is by far my favorite Batman artist. Nobody even comes close.

I think Tony Daniels and Jim Lee are at the top for me.

Marshall Rogers. Great stuff, and in the 70's, they had the cheap paper stock, making it more difficult to do vivid colors or dark shadows.

Lee, Capullo, and Ross have already been said, so I won't bother with pictures for them. I would also like to add:

Andrea Sorrentino. Even if he only draws Batman in a couple issues of I, Vampire, his Batman still rocks.
