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.
