IMO, Green Lantern is equal to New Avengers, but SWC > SI.

That's an opinion, not fact.

I think The Sinestro Corps War received award(s). Did New Avengers?

I think New Avengers sales are higher than Green Lantern at the momment.

SCW won tonnes of rewards but SI has not yet had the chance.

Better sales don't mean better books. Amazing Spiderman or Wolverine (Prior to OML) are great examples of this....

True, but the sale number does give a good indication of the book's quality.

For a book like 'New Avengers' people normally buy it for the plot: not because of fanboyism nor the pretty art.

not a rule, many crappy books sell alot just because the character is popular and some great books are cancelled because they didn't have enough audience

In the case of New Avegers and Green Lantern, they sell well due to both...

Straczynski is the best out there right now, IMO, but out of the two options I'd go with Bendis, mostly due to familiarity though.

LMAO! I read none of those. I hate how much of a Marvel Zombie I am sometimes. I would say Bendis but since I don't read any of Johns' work I can't really judge.

Bendis is only good with Daredevil and Bullseye.

And Johns' run on Flash and JSA were both better than Bendis' run on Daredevil.

You shut your filthy heretic mouth.

Okay, not really (don't want to get on Zoom's bad side), but dude, the New Avengers issues I've read I find consistently awesome and I don't give a damn what anybody else says :l

I don't know who is better since I think, at max, I've read maybe two issues by Johns.....

Johns has consistency.  Bendis can do great things and is still a good writer, but has done a lot of poor too (Secret Invasion was set up SOOOO well, then just kind of failed to me.) John's doesn't disappoint often if ever in my memory.  Going Johns on this.

I havn't read a lot of Bendis' work, but want to read powers and I read Dark Avengers which is okay. I'm a major DC fan though so Johns won from the beginning for me. Green Lantern, Blackest Night, Rebirth, Countdown to Infinite Crisis, and Booster Gold were some of my favorite books.

A couple of months ago i would have said Bendis but now that i've started reading Green Lantern from Rage of the Red Lanterns and up. I'm going to say Geoff Johns. BMB doesn't last with me when i read it long term, the story is solid and good first time you read it but it doesn't have that spark when you read his stuff over again. IMO

I agree, I'm an on and off reader of New Avengers, but since I started reading Green Lantern, I've loved the book

Bendis. The only thing that Johns has done that I really enjoyed was Teen Titans and his short run on Avengers. Then again, I'm not a big DC fan, but in my defense I've read a lot more of his stuff, his writing just doesn't strike me, though.

Bendis at the moment he has not killed any of my favorites yet.
