Writers seem to be missing from the threads...

Right now Peter David is doing a wicked job with X-Factor
Joss Wedon (sp?) with Astonishing X-Men (at least the first 8 or 9 issues...)

Garth Ennis - Preacher
Frank Miller/Neil Gaiman - Awesome at it all

Chris Claremont - Xmen...

what else in your opinion?

I definetly agree with Peter David and X-Factor! I wasnt a huge fan of the old X-Factor squad, but after this makeover, I'm hooked! Whedon is doing a great job with the astonishng X-Men. Brian Michael Bendis is writing perhaps the most amazing story right now with the Avengers. I just can't get enough!!! I'm really digging Brian K. Vaughn and the Runaways, too. I can't forget Mark Waid in Hunter Killer. And last but not least, Fabian Nicieza with the off-beat antics of the perfect odd couple in Cable & Deadpool.

Countdown #31 when Jimmy Olsen was being analyzed by Cadmus:

Dr. Sterling Roquette: Just kick back and, as Mr. Cannon here so eloquently put it, relax. Let the AMBIENT NUCLEAR ULTRA-SPECTROGRAPH do its thing.
Jimmy Olsen: Why don't you guys just use an acronym?
Dr. Sterling Roquette: You think about that.

Robert Kirkman is my vote. Walking dead and Invincible. If you have never read them, pick them up. You won't be let down.

Tom DeFalco - Amazing Spider-Girl. Best Marvel EIC ever!
Garth Ennis - He is my favorite. Whatever he writes is gold!

My favorite writers are:

Jeph Loeb- Superman/Batman, Long Halloween, Dark Victory, Superman for All Seasons, Batman Hush

KURT BUSIEK- Superman: Secret Identity, Superman (current series) this guy never fails to please

Brad Meltzer- Identity Crisis, Justice League of America- all of this and the guy still has time to write novels.

I haven't read enough of these next couple of guys to call them my favs, but what I have read I really liked.

Neil Gaiman- The Eternals was an awesome book

Brian Michael Bendis- House of M was very well written

100% agree with Heumruz on the Robert Kirkman selection.

Of course I'm digging Charlie Huston's work with Moon Knight. And I loved Steve Niles work on The Creeper.

i think i am the only sentient being that doesn't like Frank Miller. I don't get what is so special about him. Sure, he darkened batman, but he is a very predictable writer. Any time i pick up a book of his, I wonder how far I will get before someone is naked. And he can't even write a Batman only story. He is just unable. Especially when it comes to Sueprman. Frank Miller can't do a Batman only story...he always brings Superman to it. But I hear you ask "What about year one". The same thing. That focuses more on Gordon than Batman. I understand his point of view on Superman/Batman's relationship. They probably wouldn't be best friends, but that doesn't mean they couldn't work together. The U.S. Britain and the Soviet Union managed to do it, why can't they? And what is up with all of the kryptonite?! My friend and I joke about Batman killing Superman is secretly hidden in every piece of work Frank Miller does or is made from his material. Anyway, I haven't read and of the Sin City stuff. I read 300 and thought it was good. I dunno...what am I missing people?!

Good to see appreciation for a lot of good writers already mentioned: Whedon, Ennis, Gaiman (although Eternals was far from his best work, sorry), Claremont, Kirkman, Morrison - all favorites of mine.

Although his work on his Detective was a bit muddled, gotta give props to David Lapham. Check out his creator owned title Stray Bullets. IMO best crime noir book on the market, much better than Sin City. (Although its some of the more recent idiosynchracies of Miller's art style that bother me more than his writing).

I will forever be in debt to Brian Bendis for his run on Daredevil. I know it's an easy pick, but it was great! Right now I really like Brian K Vaughan's Ex Machina.

Nope your not alone.I absolutely hated Dark Knight Returns.Why this book gets so much love from the comic reading world I'll never know.His work on Allstar Batman & Robin is dang near unreadable.

Some of my favorites

Mark Waid "Kingdom Come"-The pinnacle of alternate reality stories.

John Hefferman "Driver For The Dead"-One of the few stories I could over and over again.An absolute must read for any horror fan.

David Hines "FVZA"-My second all time favorite miniseries.
