Now this is interesting. It's a list of the "most prolific" DC comics writers as determined by the number of pages of published stories as recorded in the Grand Comics Database. Very cool - I didn't know that the GCD had the kind of interface where you could get direct access to their data like that.
Interesting, but not too surprising I guess, that Robert Kanigher would be the most prolific -- he wrote a LOT of stuff back in the day. And it's across every metric too - pages, stories, issues it just doesn't matter. Gardener Fox comes in second, which is also not a surprise.
The surprising one for me is that Chuck Dixon comes in third. I knew that Dixon wrote a LOT of stuff for DC -- I remember buying a lot of it -- but damn, he's got more pages under his belt than Bob Haney or Carey Bates? That's surprising. Also surprising - Geoff Johns coming in right behind him. And he'll probably surpass him in a couple of years since he's only about a thousand pages and twenty stories behind him. And right now Johns has Justice Society as his #1 title -- I imagine that will shift to Green Lantern if he keeps on the book for much longer.
