5 Of Today’s Best Comic Writers

Warren Ellis

Often associated with dark stories and technology this Brit born in Essex has given a number of treats to the comic world.

With a skill of creating unconventional characters and turning them into likeable figures in his stories, Ellis has made the best out of outcasts, psychopaths and even the elderly in Red (adapted into two action films). Working all over the industry he has successfully put his hand to Marvel characters such as Iron Man and Moon Knight, Vertigo characters such as Hellblazer and his current Wildstorm series, while he also makes incredible creator owned content through image. His exceptionally dark humour and futuristic tales make him a favourite among mature readers.

Scott Snyder

Deservedly most well known for his excellent run on Batman with Greg Capullo, Snyder is going from strength to strength in comics. He not only is clearly able to bring new and rich content to legacy characters but he also knows how to keep things shadowy. Known previously for his horror writing such as his American Vampire and Wytches comics, Snyder continues to deliver some of the darkest most gothic stories that Batman has ever been in. In his creator owned work however he uses horror to illustrate very real human fears in smart and interesting ways time after time.

Scott Snyder

Tom King

It’s not often you hear about people making a career change from the CIA to writing comic books, but Tom King is definitely evidence that you can be great at two very different skills. When you read some of his best work, it almost seems out together in a tactical manner, strategised and thought through with a fantastic payoff.  His work on Marvel title The Vision was astounding, unleashing the best out of the comic format, and he has executed this more recently with his Mister Miracle title.

Grant Morrison

An industry veteran, Morrison now seems to pop up at his own behest and drop another mind bending story on readers every 6 months or so. From his incredible work with well known characters thanks to his encyclopedic knowledge of past comics, this man of mystery and magic is well known for bringing some of the most neglected oddballs of the past into the limelight. Unlike many other writers, his fans also somewhat expect not to understand exactly what has transpired in his books, as his penchant for obscurity and psychedelic events are now synonymously ‘classic Morrison’.

Grant Morrison

Geoff Johns

Where Grant Morrison turns virtually unknown characters into superstars Johns is the go-to man for taking the unpopular, benched titles and reviving them. He has done this over and over again, taking previously poorly selling characters such as Aquaman, Green Lantern and The Flash into a new era. Somehow able to tap into what makes these characters great and unravel it in front of the readers, Johns is DC’s resident medic for wounded content. Today he is bringing the celebrated Watchmen characters into the DC universe with his incredible Doomsday Clock story, which is sure to cause Watchmen fever all over again (Hence the upcoming TV series).
