MASTERS!!!! ?????

C'mon man. The Stan and Jack stuff is obviously sacred but Runequest? There was a reason Walt was brought on and given carte blanche after that god awful run. Namely that it was god awful.

Then the DeFalco crap. Mediocre during its best moments but mostly forgettable.

I did enjoy Worldengine but I wouldn't even call that a Masterwork by any stretch. Warren-Ellis has done better.

Don't let the abysmal depths we find ourselves in now shift your perspective on previous works that were nothing special.

Whether you like their Thor stories or not, they have earned "master" status and fan respect from the totality of their body of work in comics.

Personally, I hated World Engine, but I do not judge Warren Ellis by his Thor run alone.

Frank Miller, despite his more recent runs, is one of the best comic book writers in the modern era because of his phenomenal Daredevil run , Elektra , Year One and Dark Knight Returns.

If you're going to lump them in with Stan, Jack and Walt then those three should be Grand Poobas or something beyond Master.

But in the era where everything is EPIC, I suppose you're right. Mediocrity should stand hunchback to shoulder with the best. It's only fair. Wouldn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I'm surprised you dislike Aaron's work so much. Seems right up your alley.

Even if the word "master" has various meanings, the definition that best suits this topic is "one who is a skilled practitioner of an art".

Walt Simonson made his mark on Thor. Doug Moench made his mark on Batman. Tom DeFalco made his mark on Spider-man and as part of the creative team that developed GI Joe and Transformers. All three are contemporaries of each other. All three deserve proper respect.

And, snide remark aside, they should stand shoulder to shoulder with the other greats during the 80s and early 90s.
