I knew I'd get some pushback from that one. It's a personal favorite list.

The Long Halloween
Haunted Knight
Superman for All Seasons

Every dog has his day, right?

One thing I'm surprised about in the lists I've seen posted; there aren't nearly as many writing teams as I thought there would be.

There's some (a number of Giffen/DeMatteis for instance, but yeah, not a lot.

As for all the Stan Lee (solo) votes, I'm on record that his best stuff was when Kirby or Ditko did most of the job. Claremont likewise, X-Men was a very different book after JB left.

I've yet to see a DnA or Gray/Palmiotti mention or even a nod to Michelenie/Layton for Iron Man/Ant-Man/Hercules, etc.

Brubaker/Rucka was on my short list, but since they both also made my list as solo writers, I decided to cut the team in favor of others.

I have a feeling that both of those teams are going to do poorer than any of us thought they might.
