Morrison. I'm not a Johns fan at all so it's an easy choice.

In Grant I trust.

Geoff Johns, because I have barely read any Morrison whatsoever.

Both are a little hit or miss with me.

Johns is one of my favorite writers and I really enjoy his stories, but I prefer Morrison.

Neither.

I choose Fabian Nicieza

Johns is hit or miss.

Morrison at his WORST is a lot better than average!

Check out Morrison's JLA run if you can find it. Fantastic stuff.

@theacidskull: that's so harsh. In my opinion they are pretty level. I use to prefer Morrison because of All Star Superman and Action Comics however I am leaning towards Geoff Johns now thanks to his run on Green Lantern

Man, that poll is a lot closer than I would have imagined. That being said I'm not a Johns hater or anything. I actually love love love his stuff with GL (specifically Hal), but Morrison wrote the definitive story for the definitive super hero and that instantly puts him above any other superhero comic book writer I can think of.

BOTH!!!!

I'm not a big fan of Grant Morrison (though he has my respect as a talented writer). I would take a comic written by Geoff Johns over Morrison.

Morrison stomps.

Geoff Johns.

I voted Morrison because his Animal Man run is one of my all time favorites.

#25 Posted by TheIncredibleSuperHulk8642 (2286 posts) - - Show Bio

Morrison. Although I really like both.

@decoyelite: John's Green Lantern is much better than Morrison's JLA run. For the record, both writers have their merits. So I like both equally.

@theacidskull: Blackest Night is phenomanal. It is the best GL comic Johns has ever written.

#28 Posted by Immortal777 (8024 posts) - - Show Bio

Morrison by far.
