So, I've been noticing that there's been a few "worst writer" or "favorite writer's worst story" threads lately, and its all kind of depressing. So, I thought the vine could use a few positive threads for a change.

Mine would have to be:

Frank Miller: Batman Year One.

Ed Brubaker: It's hard to pin down a favorite from his Captain America run, but Winter Soldier is what made Cap one of my favorite characters, so it's got a bit of sentiment attached to it.

Jeph Loeb: Long Halloween.

Geoff Johns: Blackest Night.

That's all that come to mind right now. I'll probably think of more later.

What's your list look like?

You should be ashamed! Speaking of Cap, where's that drawing, buddy? xD

@veshark:

I am. :,(

Well, it was meant to be a surprise, but I was going to color it. It took allot longer then I though, sense I've been busy with work and everything.
