Grant Morrison VERSUS KMC

Grant Morrison is the greatest comic book writer outside of Moore and even that is up for grabs.

So, KMC, your mission is to pick a single comic book writer(NOT ALAN MOORE) GREATER than Grant Morrison.

You must provide at least 7 works as proof.

Jack muther ****ing Kirby

Kirby is the father of comics. Hes New Gods were far ahead of their times. Few comics today can stand toe to toe with his New Gods run, and the world he created.

To me
Kirby>Morrison>Moore=Gaiman

The KING is COMICS.

However, when it comes to writing he can't match Morrison!

Johns lacks both the depth and diversity of Morrison!

Morrison is his superior in superhero adventure. When you add the complexity of sci-fi and meta fiction Johns is light years behind.

WE3 and INVISIBLES is something we'll never see from Johns.

Jim Shooter.

XO-Manowar
Magnus Robot Fighter
Solar, Man of the Atom
Harbinger
The Korvac Saga
The Legion of Superheroes
Secret War


Yes, Morrison is more meta, and introduces more abstract concepts, but Shooter crafted a universe that could stand toe-to-toe with Marvel and DC's best stories, and the work he produced for both companies was influential and ambitious. I recently read through the entire catalogue of classic Valiant, and it is honestly staggering how cohesively that universe operated under Jim's guidance.

IMO, his ambition and consistent writing skill, combined with the fact that he started his own universe, which still runs today, at a level of quality far higher than Marvel or DC (even if he is no longer involved) puts him above Morrison.

Morrison is okay. He has a couple good reads under his belt.

While most Mangaka's just stick to one or two series that they're known for, I could very reasonably argue plenty of them as being better authors/writers than Morrison.

Comparing All star Superman to Naruto, Attack on Titan, Seven deadly sins, etc. would literally be like comparing McDonald's to Five Guys burgers and fries. They're not in the same league. (Morrison is Peewee, Naruto is the Major Leagues)

In terms of development, story line, attention to detail, readability, etc, I can think of a number of mangakas just off the top of my head that have Morrison beat by a mile.

I guess that's mostly opinionated, but I digress.

This poses the first real challenge.

When you think about Shooter writing those LOSH stories starting at the age of 13 it is really remarkable. I liked XO and Secret Wars though they bring down the average from the heights of The Korvac Saga and Solar.

Decision- MORRISON WINS!!!

Kishimoto though decent, is mostly a hack.

Read Naruto part 1, the best part of th me 2 part series, then read HXH. Is an exact copy.

Kishimoto cant write female leads to save his life. Hes even admitted it. Hes secondary characters are useless. Hes plot is all over the place.

The man shouldnt even be consider in the 100 best mangaka iif were being subjective.
