Who's your favorite writers and the writers at Marvel that you dislike?

Dislike-wise, um, Peter David and Dan Slott. Well known around here, heh.

Favorite-wise, right now it's Brain Reed and Christos Gage.

Curious experiment: I recently bought AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE #14, if you can believe it. I bought it for SECRET INVASION purposes but also because of Gage. It will be interesting to see if I like the issue. Seriously. My second favorite writer and my second most disliked writer are writing the same issue. What in the holy blue hell is up with that? How's this going to work? How will this read? Will I like parts of it and hate the rest? Will I blame the wrong person for something I dislike (or even like)? Sweet Mary Sunshine, this will be some experiment, eh? I know at least Doc Shallot will be curious as to the results!

Favorites:

Peter David, Neil Gaiman, Daniel & Charles Knauf, Matt Fraction, Greg Pak, Ed Brubaker, David Michelinie & Bob Layton (though I don't think they're under contract with Marvel)

Least Favorite:

Reggie Hudlin, Chuck Austen (he's not with Marvel anymore, is he?), Joss Whedon (though I admit I tried to like him), Terry Kavanagh, Jeph Loeb

Somewhere in the middle:

Bendis, Millar, Ellis, JMS...all four of them are better with creator-owned projects.

Who should come back?

Kurt Busiek, Walt Simonson, Len Kaminski, Christopher Priest, Mark Waid, Bruce Jones (without Axel Alonso!)
