Best of 2016? Comic writers

gmruz3t4zfvzaa2c5xfz.pngIt’s hard for me to pick a best of comics list from those I read this last year so here instead are the writers I’m reading:

MARVEL:
5. Mark Waid (Avengers, Black Widow, Champions)
4. Dan Slott (Amazing Spider-Man, Clone Conspiracy)
3. Brian Michael Bendis (Guardians, Spider-Man, Iron Man)
2. Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader)
1. Jason Aaron (Mighty Thor, Unworthy Thor, Dr. Strange, Star Wars)

The single most satisfying comic Marvel published in 2016 was Darth Vader, in my opinion, but Aaron gets the edge for volume.

DC:
5. Grant Morrison (Wonder Woman Earth One)
4. Greg Rucka (Wonder Woman)
3. Peter Tomasi (Superman)
2. Tom King (Batman, Omega Men)
1. Scott Snyder (Batman, All Star Batman)

The single most enjoyable comic series for me from DC in 2016 has been Superman (post Rebirth), but the Batman guys get the edge from me for keeping it fresh.

5. Rick Remender (Black Science)
4. Jonathan Hickman (East of West, etc)
3. Robert Kirkman (Invincible, Walking Dead)
2. Ed Brubaker (Fade Out, Kill or be Killed)
1. Brian K. Vaughan (Saga, Paper Girls)

Tough to rank this group.
