If you have no choice to read just one of those two titles: Batman & Detective Comics, which one should it be ?

Detective.

I had a choice in September in getting either and I opted for Detective.
It's the first time the book is on my monthly list and I'm digging it big time.

Batman, whilst good, felt like the lesser option compared with Detective Comics.

For me, it's Batman.

I think Snyder is a fantastic writer. He lives and breathes making Batman a detective story and incorporates a rich history of Gotham I haven't seen before. It actually takes me time to read it because I want to soak in the words and not miss anything, unusual for a comic these days.

Greg Capullo is also hands down one of the best artists out there. Amazing steal from "Haunt."

DETECTIVE just didn't do it for me, as much as I'd hoped.

I'm enjoying all of the Bat-tech and shots of BM working in the Cave.

Decent, layered story. Superb page/panel art layouts.

Solid action.

I also enjoy the dichotomy of the BM/Wayne personalities -- a cheerful, altruistic, progressive Wayne vs. an all-out-war BM.

It all keeps me coming back.

I buy e-versions on my iPad. A little bit of a different reading experience than hardcopy. Dunno how the e-versions are going to affect comic stores. But e-versions save time, gas, and wear & tear on the car.

Well,

For me, Batman IS the best Bat-title of the new 52 with Batman as the main character ... I tried Dark Knight and was disappointed.

Wow, high praise there!

Agree with this one. Do not like the direction of the characters so far - though willing to watch White Rabbit move thru the Batverse to see if she gets more personality than the Marvel version. Not crazy about the simultaneous, yet seemingly disjoint, use of the Joker straight away in the nulaunch Bat-titles. However on that note, this weeks banner submission is from BM:DTK#2 which coincidentally has the ravishing rodent in it...

Batman: The Dark Knight [II] #2 "A Rush of Blood"
