|Faves: Cockrum, Byrne, Silvestri, Portacio and Jim Lee on X-Men. Byrne on FF. Claremont on X-Men from his start until some time in the 90s. Ennis on the Punisher. I've read a few other Ennis-penned series (Red Team, Johnny Red) and have really liked his stories.
Avoid: I won't usually pay for Liefeld's work (X-Force and New Mutants were exceptions because I was working on runs), but it is fun to point out his... we'll just call them perspectives when drawing. I avoid the majority of variants so that puts Campbell on the avoid list. Frank Miller post-80s.

|I can overlook most art shortcomings if the story holds up.
Loved Byrne and Simonson's work back in the '80s on FF and Thor. Unfortunately, good artists who only think they can write are a lot more common than artists who actually can.
Only a few writers I actively avoid. Ann Nocenti, who took the New 52 Catwoman (one of my favorites of the reboot) and made it utterly unreadable. Frank Miller, because of the raging bonfire of misogyny that chars its way through everything he writes.
Mostly, I try to judge each story on its own merits, and have various tropes I can't stand more than writers/artists I can't stand.
Of course, I only buy about four or five titles these days anyway.
