There are definitely some people out there who think that (And have written.) he is the best Batman writer, and I just don't get it. Morrison did some good stories, but compared to his body of work on the whole, his Batman is some of his weakest. And in my opinion, he brought in or back Silver Age stuff that was best left forgotten. I wouldn't say that his run was great. I think that he did a better job writing Dick as Batman than he did Bruce. But I'm really struggling to see how Morrison defined the character, or how he trumps Miller, O'Neill, etc for the best writer EVER! If anyone thinks that he is or isn't, can you please elaborate as to why? Thank You.

Cool ideas of his get wrecked by haphazard execution and DECOMPRESSION.

The only thing I rather recall enjoying of his run were the first few issues of the Quitely B&R series.

The rest doesn't quite do it for me; and I especially disliked the Caveman batman story after his "death" or whatever that whole thing was.

Morrison (and all heralded recent writers) are not in the same universe of quality/influence as Miller, O'Neil and other bronze age greats.
