BEST WRITER: Warren Ellis. The year was a crash course in the works of Warren Ellis, and made me a huge fan. Heâ€™s been writing comics for years, and I feel like Iâ€™ve been missing out this whole time. He took his blend of science fiction and horror all over the industry this year, launching Ocean and Ultimate Nightmare, got his Planetary series rolling again, set out with his own line of books called Apparat, and his Global Frequency series and his short Hellblazer run were also made available. I read it all, and was never disappointed.
(Thanks to Scott Catron for finding it.)
