DAMN! I forgot to vote for Hellboy for Favorite OGN & The Walking Dead for TV/Movie

I'm not voting in most of the catergories, but what I do vote for will look just like Adrian's list actually, except I'm going with Morrison as favourite writer.

I refuse to vote for the Hall of Fame cartergory. It should be a hall of shame this year.

Cooke and Quitely definitely deserve it at some point, but not now.

Why aren't you voting for Editor? I'd vote for Ryall, if i was going to vote, as i know him (as well as you can know anyone with whom you've only interacted via the web, i guess) and he's always been super nice to me.

 

also, you should give the webcomic AxeCop a try, it's pretty bizarre in just the right fashion. It's like an illustrated childs mind.

Ade, thanks for posting the thread.

 

I agree about the Hall of Fame, but still voted in that category (for Quitely). I figure one of those nominees will get it, so it might as well be someone who will eventually deserve it. :icon_wink:

 

Didn't vote in the "best new comic" category though. All of those ancient comics make a mockery of the category. It's kind of amusing that Wolverine and the X-men was the standout nominee.

 

Matt Smith edits 2000AD, and has been doing a fantastic job for some years now.

 

Ade, have you voted yet? If you or anyone else is looking for a name to vote for in the Newcomer Artist category, Francesco Francavilla is always a tasteful option.

Is it just me, or are there a crazy number of nominations for each catergory? It seems like every person working in comics is on their respective lists.

That Standard Text dude js probably going to clean up this year. He's nominated for everything. Funny I've never heard of him.

Going against all better judgment, I ignored the 118 nominations for Stan Lee under best writer, and went with Jason Aaron. Lee really should have disqualified everyone else, and only allowed his name.

I notice he did manage to get both Kirby and Ditko removed from best artist though.
