Welcome back to the Batman anniversary celebration!  Last week, we listed our top 75 favorite Batman characters of all time.  And this week, we’re proud to announce a brand new list of Batman greatness: The Top 75 best Batman writers of all time!  So without any further hesitation, here’s the list.  Some are new, some are old, but all are timeless.  No matter how long (or how short) the tenure of each writer, they are listed alphabetically by last name, rather than ranked.  Enjoy!
