1. Ed Brubaker - I only read 3 Marvel on-goings in issue format, and 2 others in trade paperback format; Ed Brubaker writes three of them, well 2 now that he's off Iron Fist I guess (Captain America and Iron Fist in issue format, Daredevil in trade)
2. Bill Willingham - Fables is one of the best series I've ever read, period.
3. Dan Slott - His She-Hulk was brilliant and Avengers: Initiative is the other series I get in trade format. He'd be rated higher if he was still on She-Hulk \:\)
4. JMS/Matt Fraction - These guys are tied because they're both writing amazing Thor series'
5. Geoff Johns - I stopped reading DC regularly but I did just pick up the Sinestro War trades and Geoff was on the ball as usual.

Honorable mention to Kurt Busiek; though I'm only reading Astro City for titles he writes at the moment he is one of my favourite writers for sure. Not sure what he's up to at the moment, but also John Ostrander, who wrote the definitive Martian Manhunter.

Walt Simonson would have made the list simply because his Thor is that damn good but I'm not sure if he's working on anything at the moment (and this question was for current writers)
