DC. They have the Green Lantern. While not by any stretch my favorite hero, there are some sci-fi stories I have in my head that would perfectly fit a Green Lantern if it were to take place in the DCU (except for Guy, sorry Guy. Yer my second favorite Lantern too lol.).
But Image because they let you write your story, and I wouldn't need to worry about my story being cut short because of some dramatic, continuity-spanning event.
DC! It would be a dream come true! I wouldn't care if all I got to write was a Condiment King mini-series, it would still be DC.
Dude if they make you write a Condiment King miniseries, you're probably an amazing writer lol
Marvel or Image.
Marvel because they are the first publisher I've ever read, and I love their characters.
Image is the second because I was a big fan of most of their books. Vanguard, Supreme, Union and others. Also most of Liefield's characters had no backstory. So I can basically do what Valiant is doing. I could make Youngblood a force to be reckoned with.
If I were to rank it:
4. Vertigo (if allowed to say this)
5. Dark Horse
6. DC (meh)
No Dynamite. Ive seen their website and the female characters are WAY over sexualized. Their "art" seems akin to softcore porn mostly. Everytime I give them a look this is the case. No thanks, I'd rather not be a part of that.
And I don't read or know much about the others.
Creator owned stuff, to keep the rights for my characters and stories.
This. I have heard literally no hate for any of the companies like Image.
Working with the big two every writing decision you make will be blasted on here.
@soa: tough calling Image indie considering they're third in market share behind only DC and Marvel...
Indie should be those with less than 4% of the market share
