    Mark Russell, Gene Luen-Yang, Sterling Gates and Bryan E. Hill.

    At least with Hill his profile does seem to be rising a bit but the man is a true talent. His Michael Cray series is full of personality and he writes super dynamic action.

    Marc Andreyko is great too and always deserves more love.

    I'm still pissed Parker got kicked off of Aquaman. That was a great transition from Johns to him. He'd be good for Wonder Woman too, and I wanted him at the time to take over after Azzarello left (we got Finch instead)

    Yes, him too. It's a shame Dial H didn't last nearly as long as it should have.

    His Swamp thing was awsome.

Especially his later run with Kelley Jones and his crazy art. That run is a trip.
    Great one! I loved Moench's run on Batman comics though I liked it best when he was paired with the great Don Newton.

    Totally agree. I enjoyed Moench's "Heat" from Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight. Moench and Russ Heath made a good team.

    Parker on WW would be rad. He penned a great WW in his AQUAMAN annual.

    Andy Diggle (Green Arrow: Year One, Vertigo's The Losers, Hellblazer wait I'm starting to notice a recurring trend here)
    None of these writers are ones I completely like, but they all have their moments.

    I read the tail end of Delano's Hellblazer when I reread Ennis's run last year and it was worse than I remembered - and I remembered it being pretty bad. On the other hand, Bad Blood and Outlaw Nation are excellent.

    Mike Carey was great on Lucifer and decent on Hellblazer, but Ultimate Fantastic Four, Darkness Visible and God Save the Queen are all quite weak.

    Diggle, I usually don't like, but his Hellblazer and Lady Joanna Constantine are decent.

    Dave Lapham is great. I really liked City of Crime (for me it was the perfect antidote to Hush), and Young Liars, Stray Bullets, Punisher/Daredevil are all excellent.

    It really was. I even liked his SM/WW and I wasn't even a big fan of that little fling.

    Yeah his stuff with Newton is great, he had such a classic look. I just like his run with Jones because it's so...out there. Jones' art of course is over the top crazy, you can sorta feel Moench was vibing off his art while he was writing.

    Prey is another good one from that LOTDK run.
