Which writer would you pick as the best choice to fill in for a regular when they need a few fill-in issues?

I would go with Christos Gage.

Grant Morrison, and that's it.

He's the only writer really active in mainstream comics right now that I trust on anything and everything.

jason aaron seems to have an interesting take on everything he writes.

Jason Aaron so far has been about the best fill in writer I've seen on a book. He hasn't done it too often, but he made me pick up Black Panther after I swore never to read it while Hudlin was still main writer.

As already mentioned-Gage and Aaron. I'll also almost always read anything Fred Van Lente writes.

Whoops, I (somehow) forgot about him.

Morrison, then Jason Aaron.

Morrison, Peter David and Priest.

I'd say Morrison, but he's not a fill-in writer and hasn't done it in the past 10 or so years that I recall.

So of the writers who actually do fill in, I'd say Aaron & Gage.

My first thought was Paul Jenkins. He seems to get a nice grasp of every character he gets his hands on.

Aside from that, I pretty much trust Joe Kelly to write every comic ever right now.

It's a good feeling.

Warren Ellis rarely disappoints.

Jason Aaron. Brian K Vaughan if he still wrote 'em.

depends on what solicits and interviews tell me what the stories about.
I normally don't care who, if it sounds like they're gunna write something cool, I'll take a peek

Chris Yost has been good on most series he's done fill-ins for.

He's the last guy I'd trust. He's all about unchained creative vision. Fill-in arcs are the opposite of that.

I'd go with Aaron, like some people said. Also, I think Cornell could do a pretty good job.

Kurt Busiek and Neil Gaiman.

BKV. I never read anything from the man I didn't like (or love) and when people take over a book from him it usually seems less interesting.

Greg Rucka would be 2nd on this list for me.

Greg Rucka, Brian Bendis and Ed Brubaker.

crime books to superheroes, this guys writes anything.:)

how could no one write MATT FRACTION?

or how about bendis, himself?

At the risk of sounding like a sycophant, Bendis truly is my favorite mainstream comic writer, and though he doesn't lend his talents to fill-in issues per se, if he did, it would guarantee a buy from me. I trust him over any other scribe at the big two.

Judd Winick is another guy who's work always demands a look from me. The same can be applied to JMS and Brian Azzarello.

Good call on Azz, Todd. But for me, the only writer that has yet to let me down in the least is Fraction, followed by Brubaker. Not that I'd want someone like Bendis to leave New Avengers for a issue, it'd be interesting to see what one of the 3 I mentioned would do with it. Or an even more interesting though, I wonder what craziness a writer like Fraction would bring to a book like Green Lantern or The Flash...

Chuck Dixon or Fabian Nicieza.
