Who are YOUR CURRENT top 3 writers? you can list reasons also.

Mine's are-

1.Scott Snyder- Obvious choice. He is on his way to becoming one of my favorites. His Batman and Swamp Thing titles are easily one of the best from New 52. I also Heard American Vampire is a fan favorite also

2.Robert Kirkman - Love Walking Dead and Kirkman finds new ways to make things more brutal, unpredictable and Interesting. Heard his Invincible Seires is great also.

3. Greg Rucka- I was never a fan of Punisher But I started Reading His take on Punisher from issue one. Rucka has made me like Punisher. Every Issue I read was phenomenal. So sad to see him gone from Punisher.

Extra Favorites - Jeff Lemire, Rick Remender, and Matt Friction.

Geoff Johns - Look at what he's done with The Flash, Green Lantern. and Aquaman. He also does a great job on Justice League. Is there anything he can't do?

Matt Fraction- He made people want to check out Invincible Iron Man. He is a great writer.

Robert Kirkman- Invincible and The Walking Dead. What more could you ask for?

It seem that Rick Remender is a really good writer. That's good since he's doing Captain America now. :-)

As for my current top 3

1) Ed Brubaker - I really like Winter Soldier

2) Christos Gage - I like what he's doing in Avengers Academy

3) Matt Fraction - I like his take on Iron Man

My 3 best of all-time.

1) Joe Simon - Co-created my favorite character.

2) Stan Lee - reasons should be obvious

3) Jerry Siegel - again reasons should be obvious

Geoff Johns- Aquaman is fantastic

Matt Fraction- I never thought I would say it. Hawkeye has been fantastic thus far and he has my full support.

Brian Azzarello/Ed Brubaker- I couldn't choose between the two both Cap and WW are brilliant.

  1. Brubaker - Winter Soldier is great plus he did awesome work with Cap, Daredevil, and Iron Fist. It is sad that he will no longer be at Marvel but his independent work with Criminal, Incognito, and Fatale is really good.
  2. Snyder - Absolutely love what he has done with Swamp Thing and Batman has been a good read as well.
  3. Remender - He made me hate Deadpool less with his X Force work.
#39 Posted by Night Thrasher (3682 posts) - - Show Bio

1. Hickman- He's like Grant Morrison except his stories don't make you feel like he thinks he's outsmarting you. No convoluted plot twists, just stories that stand on their own and connect to a bigger story.

2. Brubaker- He brought back Bucky and I'm not throwing a hissy fit. So there!

3. Waid- Transitions from character to character and company to company better than anyone in the business.

I haven't read Avenger's Academy (don't read much Marvel, mainly DC and Dark Horse) but I LOVE him on Angel & Faith.
