I haven't read enough of the writers but from what I have read I would put Bendis there (Daredevil). Scott Snyder on Batman is so far fine (i have only read the first trade). Why is Ed Brubaker not on the list?

Alone his DD does he loose this context. I know it get a lot praise but really it isn't great the plots don't always seems tight. Start using his DD costume when there is no need (with the children and the bus crash). The side team up with spidey and black cat wasn't that great. But this could be due to DD apparently don't know PP is spidey even though this was done before MJ and PP was married and before he outed him self. So why, why did Marvel retro con that? Doesn't make sense.

not Talking about DD( even though it's awesome), i'm talking about waids hulk, and Bendis is in NO WAY close to the best, nope, not even a little.

I forgive you. xD

I guess I'll vote Other - since Hickman on New Avengers is the best stuff I'm enjoying at the present.

Well if you compare his DD with Waid it is fair better and that must be the fairest comparing writers that have done the same book.

If we're going by the title, he's just writing Fatale at the moment and he's not really versatile.

His work is mostly character driven while his plots are just alright..

I have heard a lot of good things about Fatale. even though Images don't get much praise here even though it seems like the have a lot of titles going for them that get a lot of praise elsewhere.

Even though I can see this. I think there is a problem when you jump to fast towards certain points because you want there character there that the plot seems forgotten or it doesn't matter how he gets there. Plots hole and odd plots ideas. Seems like he is going from A to C without including B.

Am I really the only vote for Lemire?

I haven't read any recent comics from Bendis (and I know it gets a lot of hate). However it comes down to how the term these days should be understood. It is what is going on at the moment or it is the last decade or so.

Got a problem with it? Come with some valid points in stead of indirectly laughing at people.

Mark Waid is insanely good. And his bad stuff is much better than Bendis/Hickman/Fraction/Johns's bad stuff.
