Welcome to vote for the Comics Should Be Good 2018 Top 100 Comic Book Writers and Artists!

Welcome to our annual Top 100 Poll! This year, vote for your favorite comic story of all time! It’s time to vote for your top 10 favorite cartoonists and artists!

The first writer/artist vote was back in 2006 (I did it on the CBR forum), the next votes were done on the main site in 2010, 2014 and 2018. And here we are again! Hitting his first 5 of the top 100 votes!When you do it every 4 years, 5 times is pretty impressive, isn’t it?

Here’s the deal. You have a chance to vote until September 30th at 11:59 PM PT. All votes will be tallied and the winner countdown will begin in early October!

How nice?

OK, here are the guidelines!

1. Vote by emailing your ballot to brianc@cbr.com. Include a subject line like “Top Writers and Artists Vote”. It doesn’t have to be very precise phrasing, but it’s along those lines (but really, you could just use that phrasing, just copy and paste, right?). As I know your email is a ballot for sorting purposes.

2. Vote here for a total of 20 people. Your 10 favorite cartoonists and 10 favorite cartoonists. Vote for 10 people each. Vote for less than 10 writers and 10 artists. Your vote doesn’t count. If you don’t know the 10 cartoonists and artists, we encourage you to wait for the next vote. Check out this winner for who’s work to check out.

3. Rank your 10 favorite comic writers and artists from #1 (most favorite) to #10 (10th favorite). It would be nice if you actually numbered the entries. #1-10. Easier to count.

Here is a template that you can use as a guide. Just copy and paste it into your email.

Five. This is for writers and artists who have worked primarily in the field of comics and graphic novels, not comic strips. Please vote accordingly. There are a lot of great comic strip creators out there, but this isn’t fair to comic strip artists as this is primarily his website for comics (e.g. Charles Schulz #48 or something like that would be ridiculous ).Cartoonist/Cartoonist that is Eligible to vote. It’s appeared on the list the last few times. I can’t promise they’ll make this current list, and I know they probably aren’t as high as they ‘should’ be, but hopefully they’ll get some recognition. is.


6. Vote for 10 artists and 10 writers. All you need is 10 favorite writers and artists! Less than 10 artists and her 10 writers don’t count votes.

7. I know it’s hard to rank a specific creator like Chris Ware who both writes and draws, but I just try my best. For example, if you really like Ware, feel free to put him at number one on both lists.

8. Vote for 10 artists and 10 writers. 10 artists and he doesn’t count votes if he’s less than 10 writers.

9. Plotters count as writers. So if you’re a fan of Keith Giffen’s plots, vote for him as a writer. is obviously about writing comics, so Jack Kirby was definitely the writer of the classic Fantastic Four story with Stan Lee.


Ten. The team is a pain in the butt, but I think the team should be split unless they are only functioning as a team. I know it’s hard to break them up if you like his JLI work, but do your best. If that means having one ranked #1 and #2 on your list, so be it. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning are no different. Or Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Or Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. It’s hard, but I believe in you.

Most importantly, have fun!
