    Johns or morrison.

    Break out would be sterling gates or Tony bedard.

    Peter tomasi continues to churn out cool comics.

    Tony Bedard.(REBELS) or Eric Trautmann (JSA vs. Kobra) . Both are publishing some of the most interesting and engaging comics coming out this year in my opinion, yet they all seem to get little to no recognition for it.

    I've just picked up the first issue of The Shield on the strength of JSA vs. Kobra. It's that good.

    Default Is this even a contest!?!

    For 2009? I don't think it's even a contest. I think Gail Simone has been the best with Secret Six!

    Most under appreciated or under the radar writer for 2009 would have to be either Tony Bedad and REBELS or Peter Tomasi and The Mighty.

    Truth. I'd give the prize to Trautmann, solely for the wildly-underrated JSA vs. Kobra mini. How I wish he and Kramer were on one of the ongoing JSA books, instead of limited to just six issues.

    Morrison would be the very close runner-up for me.

    He probably will because he is writing Blackest night and Flash:Rebirth and both are too huge projects.

    But I think morrison is a better writer. But he is only writing one DC title so it goes to johns. As I am loving both BN and Flash Rebirth and Green Lantern.

    I think you mean under-read, But so far as i have seen the people who are buying and reading his stuff are loving it.

    But his name will grow if he continues to write well.

    Gotta be Gail or Morrison. All of Batman and Robin has been stellar, despite the artist change. Secret Six has also been stellar every issue, has a great cast, great guests, makes amazing use of Bane, Deadshot, Catman, everyone. The cast is written so well, the stories are fun, dark, and exciting.

    I voted for Morrison, but if I could split I'd go with Gail/Grant. No one else has delivered as consistently for me.

    Why is there a writer of the year poll in September? For example, a rating of Johns' year probably will be effected somewhat by how Blackest Night 4 and 5 are received. While those issues are likely to be good, there's a nontrivial chance they will either be great or horrible.
    The Silver Age is roughly 1954-1971.
    The Bronze Age is roughly 1971-1986.

    The nineties are not the Bronze Age!

    The Year is coming to a close soon. Thats why i have the poll lasting for 90 days. Because then it's the end of the year.

    Matt Wagner for Madame Xanadu, but sadly not on the list. Also, no Tony Bedard for R.E.B.E.L.S.. And if you're going to list Palmiotti and Gray, it's gotta be for Jonah Hex, not Power Girl.

    So, I went for Gail Simone because Secret Six is great.
