1. Mark Waid
Mark Waid is a living legend. Considering his resume, who can deny Waid as one of the greatest writers of the our times. Irredeemable, Kingdom Come, Daredevil. All incredibly amazing books. I am sorrowed to think that at one time he was almost Editor-in-Chief of DC. That's a Dream Come True for me.
2. Brian K. Vaughan
Vaughan has written several incredibly amazing books. His current title, Saga, is easily one of the best monthly comics out there, and quite possibly the best ongoing period. Runaways was stellar, and one of the most fresh and brilliant takes on the Marvel Universe.
3. J. Michael Straczynski
JMS has written several amazing runs, but I suspect I'll be criticized for placing him so high on this list. Everyone hates Sins Past and One More Day, but I blame editorial for that. (JMS wanted to erase Sins Past with OMD, but Quesda wouldn't let him.) Superman: Earth One is one of my favorite Superman stories ever. And I absolutely love Rising Stars.
4. Geoff Johns
Geoff Johns will probably one day be regarded as one of the best writers ever at DC. His work has been incredible, especially that upon Green Lantern. He made the character popular again! And look at Infinite Crisis or Aquaman, both are amazing works.
5. Greg Rucka
Lazarus alone brings Rucka up this high, but also his work on Punisher has been phenomenal.
6. Scott Snyder
Snyder's current run on Batman is easily considered one of the greatest success stories from the New 52. His run is a classic in the making. His dialogue in Death of the Family, was impeccable. He's easily one of the greatest writers at DC now.
7. Rick Remender
Remender's run on Uncanny X-Force is legendary already, and that's saying something considering that it only ended a few months ago. Venom, Uncanny Avengers, and Captain America have been great so far, with Cap looking to be one of the best Marvel NOW! books out there. Keep it Up Remender. Keep it Up.
8. Robert Kirkman
Kirkman is on here for one reason only: The Walking Dead. Is it overrated? Sure, but it's still amazing. At this point, I ponder what else could be done to Rick Grimes. Kirkman's also created several incredibly popular characters and one of the greatest villains in comics; The Governor
9. Nick Spencer
Morning Glories is pretty much the only reason Spencer is on this list. It is the Lost of comic books.
10. Matt Fraction
Hawkeye, Fantastic Four. Enough has been said.
