    Default Is Tom King the most hated writer in comics?

    I cant find anything positive about this guy on the internet.

    Why did he become the most hated/frowned upon writer in comics today?

    I don't think he is, people just didn't seem to like his Batman run very much and the wedding copout sealed the deal. Then the situation with Jae Lee kind of made matters worse. Otherwise I don't personally find him to be that hated.

    If you hated his Batman, then yes. If you just read his Mister Miracle, then no.

    I'd argue that Bendis and Jason Aaron are much more hated than Tom, but Tom is definitely up there.

    This, I only see his HIC and Batman run get hate. People still praise his other work. With Bendis, it's like anything he does gets a negative reaction.

    It is absurd to hate somebody for what they write. You must say you hate their work, but not the guy.
    That say, I hate what Bendis did to the Legion of Super--Heroes. I liked what King wrote about Superman in up in the Sky. I like Omega Men but Heroes in crisis was disapointing. It is a mixed bag.

    God no, Bendis is easily more widely hated. Also King’s minis tend to be VERY well regarded by the general audience. Vision, Mister Miracle, etc, they all get good reception.

    I don't like King, but there are other writers that are just as worse. Bendis, Lobdell, Brubaker, etc.

    Everyone is the most hated comics writer ever.

    Even Bendis wrote one of the most beloved Spider-Man comics in the franchise history.

    Brian Michael Bendis is hands down the absolute most hated writer in comics today. Jason Aaron is trying his darnedest to catch up to him and is succeeding. To clarify just their writings not their person.

    Tom King and Brian Michael Bendis's comics seems to attract the same level of hatred among comic fans, but the difference being that people don't despise Bendis as viscerally because he keeps a comparatively low profile on social media as opposed to King. I can't think of a single example of a statement or action made by Bendis outside the pages of a comic book that garnered controversy unlike King in which you can name half a dozen.

    Slott, Lobdell, Spencer, Cates, Coates, Bendis, Cantwell, Glass, Williams, Tamaki, Millar, Taylor, Snyder, Soule, Bunn, etc., are all more or equally disliked.

    Not even close. Bendis gets more hate and Chuck Austen is universally hated. Jason Aaron is definitely a choice to consider but even then I don't think he's that hated.
