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. \:\)

Peter David and the "Hobgoblin 2299" story in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.

So this Spider-Man from the future has a daughter and she becomes the Hobgoblin of that future. They get transported to current day. And she starts tossing these things around called "Retcon Bombs".

Guess what they do?

GET IT????!?!?!?

Anyway, she dies. She throws one of these bombs at 616 Spidey and he swings it back at her, "Retcon Bombing" her out of existence.

I like PAD, I love most of his Spidey and X-Factor work, but Retcon Bomb was Dan Slott level of cringe-worthy pun.

And I hate puns.
