I tend to think in terms of the writers I like, rather than the
books...so leaving aside the guys with whom I work and would thus be
naturally inclined (millar/bendis/loeb), I'd mention Greg Rucka, Paul
Chadwick (whose work I'd go anywhere to read), Stan Sakai, I love what
the Wachowskis are doing with Doc Frankenstein, and I have to be honest
and say that across the board, the guys at DC have upped their game, I
think they're telling better stories and more character-based stuff,
even though some of the big crossover stuff gets a little too intricate
for my tastes. I love that Hal Jordan is back. It feels to me as if
they're really going back to their roots, and that's commendable.
