10 of Our Favorite Comic Writers of 2013

Rankings are so last year. Here, we’re just celebrating ten of the many writers we loved in 2013.

What did we like about 2013? Apparently, sledgehammer licking and medical website coding minutiae. But as far as comic books go, we liked a lot! Event books that were actually interesting and more! We here at Crave Online have certainly done our share of ranking things, and we will do so in the figure, but we also like liking things without fussing about exactly how much we like one thing and whether or not the like of that one thing outranks how much we like the other things. Why quantify enjoyment? Why not just enjoy enjoyment?

In that spirit, your Book Report hosts Andy Hunsaker and Iann Robinson have formed a quick list of ten writers whose work we enjoyed in 2013, with a brief sampling of each. This is in no particular order and is in no way exhaustive – feel free to add your own choices as well! Let's share some quality writing recommendations!
