Alan Moore is my all time favorite. He has done so many really great books. Often his work is so new it's revolutionary as in the case of his Miracleman, V for Vendetta, and Swamp Thing, not to mention his more famous works like the Watchmen. and he has maintained his level of greatness over the years. In 2000 he wrote the whole America's Best Comics line. It was not nearly as revolutionary as his earlier work but still really good. I love all the books of the line but Top Ten was a standout for me, really funny and dramatic at the same time.
Busiek has done numerous great things including Marvels, Astro City and Avengers vol 3. With Marvels Busiek brought something that was rarely done in comics, super heroes as seen from the common man, and he continued this in his Astro City series. With his Avengers run he showed his vast knowledge of comics and his love for the medium. At a time when the multi-dimensional-time-twisting cross- over was the thing, Busiek gave us what we all really wanted to see, really well written stories.
Roger Stern has done 2 things I love very much. His whole run on Avengers was amazing. One good story line after another. And his Dr. Strange run as well was great. He has a way of making you really care about the characters that he writes about. I haven't read his Cap or Spidy runs but I've heard they are equally great.
Doug Moench was a stand out writer before writers were recognized as anything special. He did a 100 issue run of Master of Kung fu in the 70's that was amazing. Not only did he give us action and adventure in every one of those 100 issues but he also gave us really vulnerable humans with real emotions. Shang Chi, which means rising and advancing of the spirit, is remembered for asking "why", why can't he find peace, why must he always fight. Moench wrote well structured stories and ones with heart.

Geoff Johns all the way. At this point it wouldn't bother me if he wrote every DCU book.
