2014 Top 100 Comic Book Writers and Artists Master List

After over 1,000 ballots cast (something like 1,044), here is the master list of your picks for the top comic book writers and artists of all-time! Click on any artist or writer for a write-up on that creator’s work (including samples of their art and/or writing)!

NOTE: Don’t be a jerk about creators in the comments section. If you are not a fan of a particular creator, that’s fine, but be respectful about it. No insulting creators or otherwise being a jerk about creators. I’ll be deleting any comments like that and, depending on how jerky the comment was, banning commenters.
