In another thread I'm reading that the great Grant Morrison was the primary inspiration for the Matrix movie which was, IMHO, revolutionary for Sci-Fi action movies of crazy influence over the last 20 years. I think Grant had some influence, but, IMHO, the greatest comic book writer of all time with Miracle Man was much more the influence.
And that is who I would nominate as the GOAT comic book writer, Alan Moore, comes again to the top of my mind.
He was the inspiration for The Matrix with his series, "Miracle Man".
Author of "The Watchmen"
V for Vendetta
Swamp Thing
Some of the best Superman comics ever.
The Killing Joke.

I can think of some other crazy great contributors to comic book story telling. Maybe you prefer them. Or not. Who do you choose and why?

I'd be torn between John Wagner or Pat Mills. They've never had much success in America but their work in 2000AD and other British comics is great.

John Wagner has the likes of Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Robo Hunter and Button Man.

Pat Mills can be a bit hit and miss but was on a real hot streak in the 70s, 80s and early 90s with Charley's War, Flesh, Slaine, Nemesis, ABC Warriors and Marshal Law.

So yeah it's pretty hard to pick between them.

I''m not a huge comic book reader, but probably Alan Moore.
