Karen: We decided to do a companion piece to the Bronze Age artists forum/poll, since that was so well received. This time, we're asking about writers, those scintillating scripters who brought you so many wonderful tales. Who were your favorites and why? Besides your comments here, please check out the poll to the side. We've tried to be as inclusive as possible but have undoubtedly skipped a few worthies.
Karen: I'll get the ball rolling and list a few of my favorites: it's no surprise to any regular reader of BAB that Steve Englehart makes my list. His work on Captain America and The Avengers in particular have a special place in my heart. Roy Thomas, who spans the Silver and Bronze Ages, is another writer who always seemed to turn out good material. As well as being a favorite artist of mine, Jim Starlin also ranks high on my list of writers. And I can't forget Chris Claremont or Steve Gerber, or Gerry Conway...well, what can I say, I love the Bronze Age!
Karen: OK, let's hear from the rest of you: which writers were the best of the Bronze Age?
