CBR is asking this in a poll:

http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=poll&id=97

What are your opinion on this?

Here are the choices CBR included in their poll:

-Bob Kane

-Dick Sprang

-Neal Adams

-Jim Aparo

-Frank Miller

-David Mazzuchelli

-Norm Breyfogle

-Bruce Timm

-Jim Lee

-Greg Capullo

Feel free to discuss others, though, since we're not restricted to the poll options here.

I chose Jim Aparo. When I think of Batman, it's Jim Aparo's Batman that pops into my head immeadiatly. And isn't that what "definitive" means?

What are CCL'ers opinion on this?

Copy and paste?

As far as my answer ... with those options, I would also pick Aparo. Gordon's hair always blowing in the wind.  Grin

Although I give major props to Gene Colan for gloom and atmosphere and Kelley Jones for stylized creepy  Grin

Neal Adams Batman in Detective way back in the day as well as Aparo are the two I think of when I think of Batman.  I'd throw in Jim Lee as one of my favorites.  But Adams is the Batman artist for me.
