Comic Creator Meme Part Two
Contest Update

Part One here. Now to continue:



FANTASTIC FOUR
Writer: Tom Peyer
Artist: Rags Morales

These guys must be brought back together, and I think they'd do well on Marvel's First Family. Peyer was always great at using sentimentality without getting too saccharine, and would have an absolute blast with the self-pitying Ben Grimm.
Morales would be a natural for Mr. Fantastic, after the great job he did with Elongated Man over in Identity Crisis. Since the Richards are probably about to be split up in Civil War, this is the perfect team to being them back together.


THE FLASH
Writer: Mark Millar
Artist: Mike Wieringo

Ringo's done Flash before, but he's matured since then, and between his kinetic art and Millar's wicked sense of humor, they could make this book the most fun of any on our imaginary roster.


DAREDEVIL
Writer: Brian K. Vaughn
Artist: Moebius

I considered making this a silent book with Moebius on art, since a concept as goofy as a blind superhero is perfect sci-fi artist territory. Also, Moebius is brilliant with shade and texture, and could make the back alleys of Hell's Kitchen alive with danger.
I put Vaughn on this book because I think he deserves work, frankly, and I think he could do a wonderful job with Matt Murdock, a character not unlike the central figure of Ex Machina in his guarded nature.


GREEN LANTERN
Writer: Alan Moore
Artist: J.H. Williams III

This book would cover all members of the Green Lantern Corps, and I'm sure Alan Moore could do amazing things with the physics of the Lanterns, and the nature of their powers.
Williams does his best, most far-reaching work with Moore, and I think they could turn this book into the next Swamp Thing, mysterious and cosmic.


THE INCREDIBLE HULK
Writer: Grant Morrison
Artist: Frank Quitely


I want to see these guys take on the Hulk for the very reason that they've made Superman soar: the Hulk, as is, is boring. Not with this team on board.
While Grant's delving into the intense dual psychology of Banner/Hulk, Frank gives Hulk the wide open spaces he needs to express his boundless rage.
With Quitely's gift of emotion and Grant's brilliant prose, this could be the Hulk project that Ang Lee was trying to accomplish. I have no doubt this would be the best book of the 15.


That's it for the meme post today. Look for the thrilling conclusion soon. Will I put R. Crumb on Birds of Prey? Hup!
In contest news: Reading's off the clock, and our next candidate is from Ontario, Canada, and was referred by good old Site Meter. 2scoops, is that you?

I especially like the idea of Alan Moore on Green Lantern. In my mind, the Green Lantern Corps should be similar to Moore's Top Ten. The GLs are intergalactic beat cops putting thier lives on the line. The Guardians are the commisioners and desk jockeys. And Guy Garnderner is Sipowicz.

Top Ten reminded me of all the good cop series like Homicide and Law & Order.
