I have 3;

Busiek - Loved his Avengers, hated his Defenders with Larson and his JLA bored me to tears

Claremont - Grew up on this guy. Hated, hated, hated his Extreme X-Men, but that many have been the Sal and then eye bleeding awful Kordy art

Byrne - Loved his FF, hated his Vision Quest story in WCA. That took years for the Vision to get back to being cool.

However, on the other side, I generally like everything Bendis has written, same goes for Mark Miller. used to buy anything that had PADS name on it, but his X-Factor has just been boring me recently to the point I dropped the book.

Anything that Casey writes I tend to avoid like the plague, very over rated.

> 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. \:\)
