Makes me glad I ordered the Fancy Pants HC.

Best Serialized Story
Fables #19-27: “March of the Wooden Soldiers,” by Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, and Steve Leialoha (Vertigo/DC)
I really need to check this series out. Probably next on the list after my current Wildstorm explorations.


Best Writer
Brian K. Vaughan, Y: The Last Man (Vertigo/DC); Ex Machina (WildStorm/DC); Runaways (Marvel)
It was all Y and Ex Machina that won him this. If you're not atleast getting the trades on those book then you shouldn't be reading comics.

Best Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team
TIE
John Cassaday, Astonishing X-Men (Marvel); Planetary (WildStorm/DC); I Am Legion: The Dancing Faun (Humanoids/DC)


Frank Quitely, WE3 (Vertigo/DC)
Cassaday does wonders on Planetary. I hear that X-book is alright too :wink: I've never really gotten Quitely, but then again the covers for We3 are pretty nifty...

Best Continuing Series
The Goon, by Eric Powell (Dark Horse)
Yet again, more praise for The Goon. At this rate I might not be able to wait for that beautiful signed hardcover of allt he stories in proper, sequential order....

Best New Series
Ex Machina, by Brian K. Vaughan, Tony Harris, and Tom Fesiter (WildStorm/DC)
Issue #1 was the best first issue I've read in years. It was perfect.
