The top 25 best comic book authors of all times
When we asked the question: "Who are the best comic book authors of all times? "Our groups and members of our Age of Comics took part in the elections and cast strong votes. Jim Starlin, the champion of aerospace operas, began to write comics after having served in the army as a Vietnamese soldier of war.
The Starlin entered the stage after she sold two cartoon stores to DC Comics and signed up with Marvel for a job on Amazon Spider-Man. Starlin did not introduce some of Marvel's core personalities until his run on Iron Man, which not only survive but are still in full swing today, such as the famous Thanos and Drax the Destroyer.
He was such a great hit and a productive narrator that he produced innumerable released and unreleased tales with many personalities for Marvel and his main competitor DC. The Infinity Gauntlet is a storyline about Thanos, pushed by his passion for killing half the people in the cosmos, and culminating in an epic storyline between the ground defense and later the world' s own deities.
Gail Simone, best known for inventing DC's Birds of Prey, has left an unquenchable mark as one of the industry's top designers. After working on Secret Six, The All-New Atom, Action Comics, Wonder Woman and Deadpool, Simone has won a number of prizes and accolades as one of the top women in the comic book world.
Simone was cited when she said that most women's personalities are geared to masculine target groups and overselected. Simone supports the establishment of women's equal to men's equal figures, a practise in which Simone herself has been recognised as treating the woman's figure in the same way as her masculine colleagues and providing them with an equal basis.
Since 2009 she has been a member of the Friends of Lulu's Female Comic Creator's Hall of Fame. Simone was honored in 2014 with the first ever Truth Believers Comic Award for Roll of Honor and Comic Excellence, which is a major advancement in her professional life that shows no sign of slower growth in the near future. Only a few other writers' CVs can be compared to the literature of the commitment and achievements of creator Warren Ellis.
Ellis' first big break came with Marvel after he was recruited to Hellstrom and soon after had a strong stake in the 2099 publisher Impress. Ellis, like many designers, switched to DC and Image and earned recognition from critics as he became known for placing his own distinctive hallmark on the line, often revitalising it from the impending annulment or complete reissue of its overall notion.
Ellis talent isn't just about comics. With increasing fame, his range also expanded into other genres, having released as an writer and writer of novels, created works for TV and videogame venues, and even produced Netflix's Castlevania anime serial. Currently, Warren is doing what he's best known for with DC's Wildstorm, the print bought by Jim Lee and Wildstorm Studios, where he has completely re-started the universe, its character and the almost forgot deductible in a second-generation history.
Matte Fraction has been described as one of the most highly acclaimed characters in the comic book world. Guess if you're considered to be one of the most productive comic tweakers in the business, your supporters will stand up all night just to interacted with the man behind many of our favourite characters.
He began his career as a freelance author at IDW, which is known for its adaptions of popular motion graphics. Shortly thereafter, Fraction attracted the publishers' interest with huge Marvel cartoons and was used for a number of high-profile tasks. Accompanied by author Ed Brubaker, they joined forces to perform on The Immortal Iron Fist and later Uncanny X-Men until they left the show in 2011.
He was so succesful that he brought Fraction into the cinema as a director for Iron Man 2 and as the author of the following tie-in-videogame. Fraction's idea "Fear Itself" spilled across Marvel's line in 2011 and affected every stock with its effects and repercussions in the following years.
Faction has found a new home in the imaginative heart of image cartoons and as the author of the beloved sex criminals, who are also critically acclaimed for having broken through borders and taboos in the comic. Ever since Jack Kirby's death in 1994, no author has been as recognized as an iconic figure and pioneer in the comic book world.
Broadly considered a productive creative force, Kirby joined the comic book business during the post-war period, creating innumerable protagonists that today's supporters are enjoying. Featuring a too big listing to tell, the highlight acts are The X-Men, Hulk, The Fantastic Four, The Inhumans, Galactus, Scarlet Witch, Silver Surfer, Magneto, Ka-Zar, The Avengers and many, many more.
Although his most significant contribution was made under the direction of Marvel Comics, Kirby, like many others, retained DC, Pacific Comics and his character holdings in Topps Comics. In Masters of American Comics, John Carlin describes Jack Kirby as a "superhero of style," a work of art that he describes as "deliberately savage and pompous.
" Not only did this skill kit distinguish him from others, it was also widely imitated by other contemporary performers who established the standards for the design of comic books defining the Iron Age, and was singular in that the performer had to possess a variety of style and skill during that age.
Hickman's carreer began when the still young Image Comics publisher was only just beginning to gain a foothold in the industry after a near-collapse during its creative exit in the early 2000s and was widely seen as an important factor in its future soundness. Following the triumph of the show, Hickman soon began collaborating with Brian Michael Bendis and publisher Tom Brevoort during the wonderful long secret wars, finally leading the Marvel flag ship The Fantastic Four.
Byrne's more famous work was on Marvel Comics' X-Men and Fantastic Four and the re-launch of DC Comics' Superman Franchise in 1986. Bryne was a pencil, inkwell, stamp maker and author when he introduced his ramble into the comic book business, and finally began working on X-Men comic books. Yet one cannot name Bryne's name without acknowledging him as one of the greatest Silver Age gamers and his work on the Fantastic Four that made him an industrial legends.
Oh, and he's also made a fairly beloved stench on Superman. Known for his work on tracks for DC comics like The Flash, Kingdom Come and Superman: Birthright, and for his work on Captain America, Fantastic Four and Daredevil for Marvel Comics, Mark Waid is a man who can do almost anything.
He began his professional life in the mid-1980s at a time when it was widely believed that he delivered some of the most impressive story lines that have existed for generation. and Waid quickly got to work on the Doom Patrol, Legion of Super-Heroes, Wonder Woman and Batman: Gotham by Gaslight.
Having gone away for a short time to work on free-lance typing jobs, Waid came back to type Flash, where he stayed for eight years, a practise that is outrageous in today's editorial world. Following a long story of success in numerous comic books, Waid DC quit to assume the role of Editor-in-Chief at BOOM!
Early in 2010 Waid began a long series of Marvel engagements, among them Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and S.H.I.E.L.D. Alan David began his UK careers, with Captain Britain delivering both artwork and history for the reworked classical warrior. When he came to the editor, Davis began with the ongoing work of painting Batman and the outsiders and later the flag ship Detective Comics, a giant pen for a then still young scout.
Davis's breakthrough came without a doubt when he founded Excalibur with legendary Chris Claremont, a crew made up of protagonists who lived and worked in England and the British Isles. Although he abandoned the book in edition 24 due to lack of urgency, this year Davis came back to Excalibur with full liberty as an author and artist and was emboldened to try out by far the most excentric book of the X-Men.
Late works included the establishment of ClanDestine, Batman:Full Circle and drafted many other tracks such as Justice League America, The Avengers and The Fantastic Four. Nicieza began his typing carrier at Psi-Force for Marvel's New Universe Imprint and then became massively successful with running on the X-Men, X-Force and the launch of the New Warriors and following thandbolts.
Surely you cannot compose an essay about him without paying tribute to his co-creator, one of Marvel's greatest personalities, the Merc with the Mouth, Deadpool. Twelfth best comic... author. Avengers, X-Men and Phantastic 4 members are the closest I am to me than most humans in reality.
But... his literacy? Having recovered from pulmonary surgeries at the tender age of 17, Scott Lobdell recorded his first comic book, and as they say, the remainder is over. The takeover of the flag ship X-Men titles at any given moment would be frightening for almost everyone. To do it in 1991, at the peak of the franchise's iconic success, to replace Chris Claremont, with your most remarkable earlier gathering, a fistful of 8-page message in Marvel Comics Presents?
Finally Lobdell took over the two major XL tracks and created the popular Gen XP in the mid -90s and is the X-man of a whole generations of people. Today Lobdell is still working at DC, and writes Red Hood and the Outlaws. Isn' it his creative corporate identity cover Power? It' the chief Architect of the Marvel Ultimate Universe, complete with his record-breaking run on Ultimate SpiderMan?
Another is his production of Jessica Jones, one of the toughest Marvel character (and the best Marvel-Netflix show by far). Bendis finally went from the obscure corner of comic books to the big ones, where he had a much larger readership and a much higher level of critique.
Then he took over the X-Men. However, last year Bendis moved to DC to fix the weak Superman franchise and wrote Action Comics, Superman and a 6-piece mini-series, Man of Steel. I don't know how this works, because in my view, nothing but the Hands of God can make Superman a worthy person to take care of.
Allow me to wander for a moment - I just heard Louise Simonsonson's Interview on Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men, and she's just as adorable as you'd expect. However, "Weezie" began several years as an editorial assistant for the X-Men before turning to typing.
However, I AM acquainted with her run on X-Factor, where she took a rather average, pictorial track and made it a must-read. Finally she also took over New Mutants from Chris Claremont in the middle of the serial run. As Marvel went through her writers' house cleaning in the early 1990s, Weezie relocated to DC, where she brought a few new Superman books to market and had a big role in the Death of Superman Dealership.
Cause I can number on 1 handful the other readings (comic or otherwise) that have disembowelled me, like the end of that. I don't know what decisions you've made in your lifetime if you haven't yet seen this show, but they're obviously the wrong one. Really, I haven't seen a thing from Vaughan that I found anything less than awesome.
I could be writing a whole story just about my profound and constant affection for this show. but I' m not really acquainted with many of Gaiman's comic works. Sandman is, I suppose, his signing feat, and it's on my roster of shows to which I'll finally have to struggle my way through once I've realized my dreams of being 600 pounds and being put to sleep with nothing but free-ze-pop and my own tales.
From now on, however, I will be referring to the opinions of my boyfriend who, after embarrassing me for not having read it, told me that Sandman "...is a transcendental, so much more than just a comic book, than just artwork itself. Apparently he also has written the Marvel 1602 show, and a few things for the figure Angela who Marvel still thinks I need to take good look at, but Sandman is his part of the drag.
I' d like to say that despite my relatively lack of interest in his comic book careers, I'm quite a big supporter of his work. So I can be sure that his comic material is of similar grade. Funny little things - if we had only accepted the Marvel site vote for this survey, Geoff Johns would have been number 11.
DC electors (of whom there weren't many, increase it, DC enthusiasts, Marvel beats you) have brought him 6 places to this place. So Geoff was like the director of DC for a couple of years, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah, but this countdown is all about comic writers (Sidenote, I was looking at more images and I take back what I said about him being too warm, I think it was airbrush or a good angle), so I'm concentrating on that.
For all intents and purposes, Geoff Johns is a comic book wonder child. JSA and The Flash were written within a year and he wanted to work in comic books. Successfully launching Teen Titans, Green Lantern back on the market, composing high-profile tales such as Blackest Night, Infinite Crisis and Flashpoint, he even plunged his toe into Marvel Water's with a brief stay on Avengers that no one really remembered, but should.
However, he is currently stepping down as CCO of DC to concentrate on creating and directing new TV/Film/Comic Book contents for DC and Warner Brothers. I guess what he's got is dominion over some of the most famous franchise companies - JLA, Batman, Superman, X-Men, and instead of being compelled to play by the mainstream rule of these tracks, he just does his own thing.
Morrison is one of those authors for me, I just have to listen to his name appended and I will be interested in the work. However, since X-Men is my first real heart, I was obviously presented to him there for the first time. I can' t imagine any other maker in the story of this show who has opposing views about his run among supporters of XP.
Either he is announced as the saviour of the X-line, bringing new inspiration and power to the weak franchise (right after Claremont's unfortunate 6-month gap comeback), or the Antichrist, who transforms the track into something unknown to long-time supporters. "It really made me adjust to what I thought, what comic books might be, what they might look like, what they might say.
Had that been the only thing Alan Moore ever said, he'd earn a place on that roster (hell, Whedon's only here for stunning X-Men), but no. Not only does he do great comic books, he also does important comic books. This says something about how astonishing Chris Claremont's early work is that he can take first place in this count down despite practically everything he's been writing since 1998 (and don't try to tell me that X-Treme X-Men was good because you're a dirty lying and you can figure yourself out).
But the bottom line - Chris Claremont designed the X-Men. Yes, they kicked around for years before he took the lead, but really, the whole point of each of us giving a $#! + about icons like Storm, Kitty Pryde, Rogue and a TON of others is because he made them and/or made them personal.
I' m gonna forever be grateful to this dude for the present he gave me in comic books. He' s the best author? Subscribe to our Age of Social Media Network, which includes X-Men, Marvel, DC, Superheroes and Action Movies, Anime, Indie Cartoons and more.
