Quote:Judging not the amount of work, but the quality of the body of work they did, do you think the follwing writers & artists did better work for Marvel or for DC? And why?
Jack Kirby - Definitely Marvel. Kirby did his best work when paired with Stan Lee.
Keith Giffin - I'm a huge fan of Giffen's Justice League work so I've got to go with DC here.
Geoff Johns - DC hands down. Johns is responsible for so many amazing story arcs at DC (Flash, Green Lantern, JSA, etc), he's their Bendis except he knows how to write team books.
George Perez - I could go either way with Perez. Teen Titans was pretty big for him obviously but his Avengers run was first-rate as well. Considering he was tapped as the penciller for JLA/Avengers I'm gonna declare this one a tie.
The Kubert Brothers - I know they were DC exclusive for awhile but I always associate them with Marvel.
John Byrne - He's had impact at both companies but I think he has more classics with Marvel; Alpha Flight, X-Men, Fantastic Four, even his Namor run was really good.
Chris Claremont - I didn't even know Claremont had done any work for DC!
Walt Simonson - No writer has made such an impact on a character as Simsonson did on Thor, IMHO.
Louise Simonson - I could go either way here.
Roger Stern - Another tough call. I'm a big fan of his Spider-Man run but he's also been instrumental on Superman as well. Calling this one a draw.
Marv Wolfman - Marv has done a lot of work for Marvel but I tend to think of him as a DC man first, since he did Crisis and Teen Titans.
Frank Miller - I'm not a big Frank Miller fan, honestly (I can't stand his art on mainstream superheroes, don't mind it for Sin City though), but I tend to think of Dark Knight before Daredevil.
