Title: Top 5 DC Writers & Artists Right Now
Post by: Jeff on October 18, 2022, 03:10:27 PM
Creative teams have changed quite a bit lately.  Who do you think are DCís best writers and artists right now?

Let me kick it off with my thoughts.

The writers are easy for me.

1.  James Tynion III - The Nice House by the Lake
2.  Tom King - Human Target
3.  Tom Taylor - Nightwing, Dark Knights of Steel
4.  Joshua Williamson - Rogues, Dark Crisis
5.  Mark Waid - Worlds Finest

The artists I have to think about and come back.

At least until Geoff Johns stuff starts  ;D

I will put my

WRITERS

1 & 2 Tom King and Tom Taylor -they are both 1 and 2 because I keep getting them wrong when I bring them up to discuss! I love Nightwing, Human Target, Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow, Dark Knights of Steel, even Superman Son of Kal-El, Catwoman/Batman, Batman Killing Time
3. Joshua Williamson. Props to his huge Flash run. He really went to a lot of great places with it! And I don't think there isn't a month where I don't read 3-4 of his books
4. Philip Kennedy Johnson - I love his...love of Superman, and treatment of the character, and treatment of his best power-his humanity and his compassion!
5. Mark Waid -OF COURSE MARK WAID!!!

I'd love for Geoff Johns to be back on this list. Ram V is crawling up the lists. Matthew Rosenberg writes solid books that I enjoy too.
I'm sure Chip Zdarsky will continue to rise up this list too!!
