This was a tough one for me. I love Sandman. Stardust is one of my favorite movies of the last 10 years or so. But Watchmen, V For Vendetta, Miracle Man ...

This could go either way for me.

I first discovered Alan Moore when he took over writing Swamp Thing, and he blew me away. I still haven't read Miracle Man. I will have to correct that.

Love Swamp Thing... one of my introductions to comic books.

It was hard for me, too, but Gaiman won.

Much as I like Gaiman, he wouldn't be anything without Moore blazing the trail.

Not only that, but Moore tends to have more solid plotting, and subtler characterization. Actually, the difference in sheer name between Sandman and Watchmen sums them up nicely for me: Gaiman is exquisite at painting dreams and fantasies, while Moore's stories are finely-constructed machines that do exactly what they need to do when they need to do it.

Gaiman's like a happy medium between Moore and Morrison.

I can barely tolerate Morrison. Gaiman I enjoy, but in smaller doses. I did really dig American Gods, though.

That's probably what it is to me-- I got less and less into Sandman as it got more and more...well, dreamy and abstract.

Moore just grabs me by the nuts and won't let go, and in his case I actually like it;)

VERY tough choice. I decided Gaiman edged out Moore by a nose hair, but no more than that.

Alan Moore's name is too close to Robert Moore, who i am angry at for arbitrary reasons.

Also, it's close to Michael Moore, who i'm angry at for less arbitrary reasons, and i'd hate for him to think i support him by voting for people who share his last name.

I've never been into comic books, so I had to go with Neil.
