'kris Pung Surprised to see Animal Man on the list.

Sean Sandusky Grant morrison, Jeff Loeb, Jeff lemire, Alan Moore, and garth Ennis? What the hell, these ate some of the best comic writers today.

Jeph Loeb actually does suck. He may have done some good work in the past, but after his son's unfortunate death, his work just became utter garbage.

But you're right that this is a terrible, ridiculous list. A lot of these writers did some incredible work. Morrison, Moore and Ennis are generally considered among the top comic writers ever. Meanwhile, the list doesn't have Chuck Austen, a guy considered one of the worst ever. Rucka, Spurrier and Pak are very well-regarded, while Rob Liefeld's attempts at writing are considered laughable, but he inexplicably gets a pass.

Awful list.


message 4: by The (new)

The Authority whoever wrote this list needs to be beat unconscious, woken up the beat unconscious again. if it's not a joke, this person apparently does not read comics AT ALL. there's just no way this can be serious, period. I just refuse to believe it is.

Oran This list is terrible.


message 6: by Juan (new)

Juan Trolls are everywhere it seems. This one likes to pretend he reads comics.


message 7: by Nirov (new)

Nirov Troll list


message 8: by Kristoffer (new)

Kristoffer Bolton The one good book that Loeb wrote and you list it.

Troll list.


message 9: by L. (new)

L. McCoy Okay, who put Lemire, Ennis and Rucka in this list? That's bulls***! Guess that's why it's called an opinion though...
