Who is your favorite fictional detective (books, comics, manga, TV)?
There are so many out there.
Super detectives (ie Batman), child/teen detectives (ie Detective Conan, L and Near from Death Note), drug using detectives (ie Sherlock Holmes), gumshoe detectives (ie Dick Tracy), dumbass detectives (ie Sam and Max), Vampire Detectives (ie Angel), Secret Agent detectives (ie James Bond), Gentlemen Thief Detectives (ie Arsène Lupin)...and so on.
So who is your favorite? You do not have to be particular, you could just even specify a type.
