Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition:

Nice to see Kyle Bakers PLASTIC MAN get some love, mayhaps it'll save it from cancellation again? I'm actually shocked Brian K Vaughan got best writer over Geoff Johns this year and how COULD anyone pick who's a better artist between John Cassaday and Frank Quietley.

Sean McKeever IS deserving of wider recognition, perhaps that's why Marvel is bringing back his vastly ignored SENTINEL series next year.

Congrats to the winners who DESERVE it... by this, I mean Dan Clowes is highly overrated and I personally don't see the big deal over him.

Let's hope that next year, we get to show some love for Keith Giffens' JLA CLASSIFIED arc, because even I got a little teary eyed with the ending to issue #7. I wished something more would have come from that, like Guy Gardner and Fire hooking up.

Congratulations to Brian K. Vaughan, who completely deserves the recognition as one of the best and most consistently entertaining writers out there today. He also manages to always come up with the best cliffhanger endings from month to month.

Ex Machina, Y: the Last Man, Runaways, and even Ultimate X-Men are all great series.

That actually already happened back in the previous version of JLA. (When they had the satellite.)

My only quibble in the awards is that I've never cared too much for Quitely's art.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Agreed on Quitely's art and his deadline failure. Jim Lee should win best artist every year he works. I read The Originals and it was OK, but not Gibbons best work.

I'll show these awards to my library to pressure them to get these graphic novels so I can read them for free.

I don't really read comics much anymore, but Tom is one of my oldest and best friends, and as such, I feel the need to let you know that it's Feister.

Is there a link for the complete list of winners? (Nevermind, I should probably just Google it.)

Well, if you view Captain marvel as Superman's equal, and black Adam is the 'dark captain marvel,' it's not so surprising.
