One thing I was wondering, who is the best "modern" Spider-Man writer, Slott or JMS?
It feels like I am slighting greats like Jenkins, Wells and PAD by not including them in the poll, but none of those writers had as much control over the character or as long of a tenure on such a high-profile book as the two in question did.
I think both are comparable because they both gave Peter an 'adult' job that he hadn't had before, both redefined his relationship with Mary-Jane, both set him on an 'arc' of sorts and both used other heroes like the Avengers heavily. Both also wrote Peter's "death."
I chose not to include Bendis as USM is its own world. I like both, and will answer who I prefer later on. To vote 'neither' is an option, but to vote that you liked both is not because this is about seeing whose work is preferred.
