> I must respectfully disagree where Marvel is concerned. Stan Lee stood out among his peers, to the point where much of the friction between he and Kirby and he and Ditko can be traced to it. In the 1970s, Denny O'Neill, Steve Englehart, Gerry Conway, Chris Claremont and Roy Thomas, among others, made their presence felt. In the 1980s and 1990s, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Peter David and Warren Ellis were writers who overshadowed many of their artists.

I must disagree with you. On the mainstream books there was a house style. Also good art can help a bad story. Bad art can and will hurt a good story.
