While Jim Lee is good, I think he's better suited for flashy heroes who stand with legs spread and fists on hips. I wasn't so into his take on Batman, as it wasn't sleek and shadowy enough. I dislike Turner and McGuiness, so I guess you and I aren't going to be shopping for art together anytime soon. ;\)

As for me, I like Dave Mazzucchelli, Steve Rude, Matt Wagner type style when it comes to Batman. Simple, lots of silhouette shots, black and gray costume, all good stuff. For a more classic look, Jim Aparo and Neal Adams did some fun stuff. Bruce Timm and Mike Parobeck for the animated look is also great.
