With 6 months of my yearlong “2,011 in 2011″ comic-book reading challenge coming to an end today, I should be halfway done.  I’m not, but I’ve still managed to read 877 comic books in 6 months, which isn’t a bad run.  Making the goal is still in sight.

Looking back over the comics I’ve read, prolific author Peter David is my most-read comics writer in 2011, by quite a bit, with 87 comics of his read (or, right around 10 percent of the total thus far).

Here’s the top 10 list:

1. Peter David: 87
2. Jay Faerber: 54
3. Stan Lee: 42
3 (tie). Chris Claremont: 42
5. Jim Shooter: 36
6. Mike W. Barr: 31
7. Teri Sue Wood: 24
8. Steve Englehart: 20
9. Ed Brubaker: 17
9. Jim Starlin: 17
(Edit: I forgot to add “Breed” to Jim Starlin’s total originally, which puts him on the list and bumps Dan Slott. Sorry, Dan.  All told, I’ve read comics from more than 100 writers thus far.)

What comic-book writers have you been reading this year?
