Reply Subj: Battle of the Writers. Joe Q vs Stan Lee and More
Posted: Fri Jan 22, 2010 at 09:04:39 am EST (Viewed 29 times)

    I think Joe Q is more an idea man than a writer but he is in charge of marvel much like Stan 'The Man' Lee was back in the day, so who has the most mojo?

As business men I'm not sure who I would say is better, but as writers I have to go with Stan Lee. I know some of his stories and dialogue can seem childish by today's standards, but I still find them enjoyable. Factor in the era they were written in and they were advanced stuff. I even like the stories he writes on occasions.

Joe Q is more of an artist. I think he has only written one or two things and while alright they were not great.


    Bendis vs Morrison

I think I like Bendis better when he writes something that is his suite. I haven't read much of Morrison, but his stories from what little I've read can get hard to follow.

    Avengers writers: Bendis vs Roger Stern

No comment. I think I've read some stories by Stern, but I'm not sure what.

    Mark Millar vs Geoff Johns

Johns. Millar tends to start out with good ideas, but about halfway through the story or near the end logic falls apart as he writes to give the artists something neat to draw. He goes more for "cool" then story content

    Alan Moore vs Neil Gaiman

As comic book writers I have to go with Moore. Gaiman has done well if not great on what he has done and I think Sandman is one of the best series ever, but Moore has shown he can do more diverse writings and they all are very well done.

    Greg Pak vs Peter David

PAD. He can take just about any character and have at least a decent if not great run on it. Pak has done well with the Hulk, but as yet to proof he can really write anything else. His Hercules started off great, but has become a bit too comedic for my liking.

    Mike Oeming vs JMS

Overall I think I like JMS better, but each has their own style that I really like. JMS is good at the deeper meaning or higher purpose type stories. Oeming I think is a bit better at character moments and just writing a fun book.

    Jack "King" Kirby vs Kurt Busiek

Busiek, Kirby's skills were at art. He could come up with good concepts, but his execution was not as well as some other writers.

    Jim Shooter's Secret Wars vs Brian Bendis Secret Invasion

Secret Wars definitly. Every issue felt like it had a purpose and was not just filler.
