There is a right answer to this - however hard - but can you find it? Well if you've not already you have until tomorrow (Tuesday) morning to get this one right...

Winner: John Smith.

John Smith - the greatest, strangest, best talent 2000AD has ever produced.

VOTING CLOSED - but feel free to add votes and comments but the call is made.

Well this one hurt. Si Spurrier is one of my favourite writers and one whose work I pick up in those old US of A comics almost by default. So much imagination and verve. But its not been as close as I thought it would and when you think of John Smith's work for Tharg you kinda know why. He's in my top five comic writers of all time - though that might be a top 6 these days (see the other vote closing today - so with a heavy heart I'm very happy to annouce

John Smith

As the writer through to the next round.

For Lobster Random alone, Si Spurrier gets my vote
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

My vote goes to Smith. I always feel I should enjoy Spurrier's stuff more than I actually do.
