Actually, they pit alot of writers against each other, not just that one match up. I did the first round and I came up pretty well.

Ahhhh. Who sucks less!?!? They might as well have had me choose between the Bee-Gees and Michael Jackson!!!
Chris had great stories back in the 70's. The stories now, are ok. McFarlane, I have his visionaries TPB, and it's alright from what I've seen.

I was referring to Chris' current work and McFarlane's older work...none of which is impressive.
I know what you were referring too. was just talking about Chris's stuff that people liked.

I loved "Days of Future Past". Was never really impressed by any other Claremont stories.

I'd agree on all except I'd have chosen Ellis over Morisson, only cuz I'm more familiar with his stuff.

How can people think Carnage is cool? Oh wait, they don't. That's just you. Though Spot is cool.

Brian Michael Bendis (I only picked Bendis because I don't know who the other guy is?)
Chris Claremont (His old X-Men stuff was okay...)
Mark Millar (One of my favourite writers.)
John Byrne (I've only read some of his stories...)
Robert Kirkman (I like both, but I've liked Kirkman's stories better.)
JMS (His Spidey is cool.)
BKV (Another of my favourite writers, mainly with his original stuff.)
Paul Jenkins (More familiar with him...)
Ed Brubaker (His Batman is cool.)
Warren Ellis (I love this *******.)
Neil Gaiman (1602 was great.)
Greg Pak (I like Endsong, minus the confusing bits.)
Alan Moore (This guy is like God!)
Mark Waid (His FF rocks like Kingdom Come.)
Jeph Loeb (I like Loeb's Batman/Superman and Hush was okay...)
Garth Ennis (This guy sounds cool.)

If I was a mod I would delete that post. Or change it.
