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
Steve Englehart
Keith Giffin
Geoff Johns
Roy Thomas
George Perez
The Kubert Brothers
Jim Starlin
John Byrne
Jim Lee
Neal Adams
Chris Claremont
Walt Simonson
Louise Simonson
Roger Stern
Marv Wolfman
Frank Miller

*and remember there are no right or wrong answers...just right opinions*

Why'd you have to go and make me think like that?

Kirby - It'd be the obvious answer to just go ahead and say Marvel cos he created the universe almost singlehandedly, but have you read Kirby's DC stuff? There are so many fantastic ideas in there that the Marvel Universe wouldn't have been able to contain at the time. OMAC, The Demon, The Fourth World and all the rest. Such good books. Marvel prolly still wins this round, but damn, his DC was awesome.

Steve Englehart - Marvel
Keith Giffin - DC
Geoff Johns - DC. Definitely DC.
Roy Thomas - Marvel
George Perez - DC. His Wonder Woman run. His Teen Titans run.
The Kubert Brothers - Marvel. While I think Andy is a fantastic Batman artist, Adam's work somehow just looks better in the Marvel Universe.

Jim Starlin - Ooo. Uhhh. Marvel.
John Byrne - I'm not a fan, but Marvel.
Jim Lee - Yikes. He's kinda responsible for making X-Men into an epic marketing franchise in a lot of ways (I know it had multiple books long before he was around, but most people my age know X-Men cos of Jim Lee, not Chris Claremont), and I've never been a massive fan of the books he's done at DC lately ("Hush" or "All Star"), so Marvel.

Neal Adams - Marvel
Chris Claremont - Marvel
Walt Simonson - Marvel
Louise Simonson - Marvel
Roger Stern - Marvel
Marv Wolfman - DC. He did the iconic comic event right there and, of course, the Teen Titans.
Frank Miller - Ooo. His older Batman work is iconic and influenced the character for decades, but his Daredevil and Elektra stuff has been just as powerful. That being said, I think "Year One" is one of his best achievments. DC.
