2015 was an outstanding year for comics; a year of great books by amazing talents, both new and established. But what were the highlights? We’re asking you to pick the best comics, creators, and more in 2015.

This poll is your chance to vote for outstanding writer of 2015. Writing for comics is a uniquely challenging job; writers must navigate between the limitations of the page and the near absolute freedom of the graphic narrative --- without trying to ruin the artist's day. These are the writers whose imagination and craft are perfectly matched.

The nominees for outstanding writer are Al Ewing (Loki: Agent of Asgard, Captain America & The Mighty Avengers); Brian K Vaughan (Saga, Paper Girls); Genevieve Valentine (Catwoman); Grant Morrison (Multiversity, Nameless); James Roberts (Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye); Jason Aaron (Southern Bastards, Thor); Kelly Thompson (Jem And The Holograms, Heart In A Box); Kieron Gillen (The Wicked & The Divine, Darth Vader); Kurt Busiek (The Autumnlands, Astro City); Marguerite Bennett (DC Comics Bombshells, Years of Future Past); Mark Waid (Daredevil, Empire);
Nick Spencer (Morning Glories, Ant-Man); Scott Snyder (Batman, Wytches);
Si Spurrier (The Spire, Marvel Zombies); Steve Orlando (Midnighter, Virgil); and Tom King (Omega Men, Grayson).

 

 

Voting is open until midnight EST on Tuesday December 15. Vote in the other Best of 2015 polls here.
