    I'd vote but I already did.

    Gaiman is far superior.

    This is a very hard decision.

    Alan Moore - One of the greatest writers who started he beginning of Vertigo and the ideas of dark gothic characters and serial killers in Modern Age comics. Swamp Thing, Watchmen, League of Ex. Gentlemen, Promethea, ect. (just to name a few)

    Neil Gaiman - Another one of the greats who created one of the bestselling and most popular Vertigo series so far. Also still writing great stories such as 1602 and upcoming Neverwhere.

    It's a tough choice, but I'll have to go Alan Moore.

    Moore. I personally think his work on MiracleMan was a lot better then Gaimen. I haven't read the Sandman series yet or 1602, not too too much of Gaimens work actually. But I prefer Moore from what I've seen. Neil's still great and all though. :up:

    X, you've got to read the Sandman stuff. I was just describing it to one of my friends this weekend like this.

    The Sandman is a story so good that you'll never read it more than once.

    Because you'll remember it forever.


    I honestly don't even read it anymore. I'll just pull one of the volumes off the shelf, flip through a few pages and remember how grand a story it was, in all it's glory without even reading a word.

    You're a LIAR DBM, I just took out the entire Sandman series from my library to read for the second time. :p

    Oh, yeah, I vote Gaiman.

    Moore. Because he wrote Watchmen, and Gaiman didn't.

    Using the same kind of reasoning.

    Gaiman because he wrote the Sandman and Moore didn't.

    Hah!

    Am I the only one that's read MiracleMan? I personally think it's overall better then Watchmen, it has a lot of the same ideas as well. Gaimen took over took over right after Moore left and he did flesh the MiracleMan world out a bit more among other things, but I still think Moore was overall better. Then again I don't think MM is Neil's usual stomping grounds, and I don't have much of his work to judge off of. Sandman, here I come...

    I've read MiracleMan. I think it is an excellent read as well. I've never denied it. As to whether it is better than Watchman, I'd have to say I'm a little iffy on that one. I'm going to say they are equal in my opinion.

    I think it's absolutely sinful you've never read Sandman, X. it lowers my opinion of you as a comic reader

    :(

    Give him time. It's a good size read. I didn't even read it until last year. In fact until about a year and a half ago I hadn't read any Vertigo. Now I've read almost all of it.

    Ah well. You fail to take into account I've only been a comic fan for a year, if that. I'm just as knowledgable as anyone, I don't care if you've been a fan for 20 years.

    I personally would take MiracleMan over Watchmen, just by a bit. Then again MM ran 20 some odd issues, they had more opportunitys to do this and that.

    Mark Millar doesn't even belong in the same thread as Gaiman and Moore.
