> I thought this would be an interesting topic. Rather than harp on the writers we don't like, which I am supremely guilty of, why not pick at the ones we do like? I'll start things off with my favorite current writer:
>
> Brian Reed.
>
> I love his run on MS. MARVEL, my top favorite comic. Everybody knows that. But what you may not know is that he was a part of the most atrocious comic storyline ever, a story so horrendous and offensive that I ended up literally throwing the issues in the garbage can. Seriously. I crunched them up into a sort of ball and scored two points.
>
> I am taling about the five-issue SPIDER-WOMAN: ORIGIN atrocity. Good Glorious Creepers, was that disgusting. Spider-Woman's origin was butchered to hell and back. I hate the thing so much that I totally ignore it. Spider-Woman's original origin still stands with me. Either that, or the SW:O series told the origin of Jessica as thought by Veranke.
>
> In any case, Brian Reed co-scripted that &^*%^. I think it was his first Marvel work, too. But, boy has he redeemed himself with MS. MARVEL. Man, oh, man. Such awesomeness. Stories with genuine twists and surprises not telegraphed in advance by idiot solicits or saw-it-coming-a-mile-away mumbo jumbo.

> What about your favorite writer or writers? You know, the ones whose work you love and find no fault with? Any sinkers in their otherwise stellar work? Just curious. I hope this is a good topic. \:\)

I liked Waid's FF run, though it irked me when he claimed the Yancy Street Gang never sent Ben packages. He said Johnny impersonated the YSG, which doesn't make sense to me.

Authoratative Auction bored me (didn't help that one of my issues reprinted several pages twice, and apparently my copy was a freak because no one else in the FFMB had that problem), didn't really like Hereafter all that much, then the guy breaks his own rule at the very end of his run! Waid wanted Ben to be the Thing 24/7, yet his two-part finale involved all the FFers losing their powers
