Thumbs up Alan Grant/Norm Breyfogle Detective Comics era fan thread

The era of Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle on Detective Comics in the late 80's to early 90's is possibly my favorite run on any Batman related comic title. So many great stories were in this era.

Not only did some great new villains spring up during this era such as The Ventriloquist and Scarface, Cornelius Stirk, The Ratcatcher, Anarky, and The Corrosive Man, but it gave great stories on classic villains like Penguin and the Clayfaces.

I also love how drugs were a prominent theme during this era. Grant was always having Batman tackle criminals who were peddling drugs. Even Scarface was dealing drugs. It gave the stories a real gritty edge.

Breyfogle is one of my favorite Batman artists. He couldn't draw a bad character if he tried, in my opinion:

Anyone else a big fan of this era on Detective?
