Comments

  1. DAVE STEVENS’ THE ROCKETEER: ARITIST’S EDITION dominating this year. But it is a beautiful book. If you like comics check out our weekly Web TV Show on comics.

  2. How does TINY TITANS keep winning awards? It’s a great book for adults, but it’s a mediocre read (at best) for kids.

    And the AMERICAN VAMPIRE crew should give a piece of their awards and money to Howard Chaykin and David Tischman, as AV is a weak cross of AMERICAN CENTURY and BLACK KISS. Snyder’s a good writer, but not here…

  3. Jackie Estrada says:

    Congratulations to all the nominees and winners!

  4. Synsidar says:

    I saw that THOR: THE MIGHTY AVENGER won awards. I’m not going to argue that the awards weren’t deserved — but why? I read one issue, #4, after seeing the series praised again and again online, and felt like I was reading about a Super Friends version of Thor — something a parent might read with an eight-year-old son. Whatever content in that issue was aimed at adults, aside from the artwork — I didn’t see it.

    SRS

  5. Rick Hood says:

    I would have to agree with Synsidar on the Mighty Thor. It was well done but definitely not aimed at adults. The fact that it was cancelled also shows that either children are no longer interested in comicbooks or that mainstream comicbook publishers have not figured out how to market books whose audience is primarily children.

  6. @Leaky Why do you say it is a mediocre read for kids? My son who is part of the 8 and under crowd adores it and rereads his trades and copies regularly. I’ve given copies to other kids both younger and older and they also like it.

  7. Leaky says:

    Older kids liking it doesn’t shock me — younger kids I’ve given copies to couldn’t be bothered to finish it. They were bored and (the worst offense in these kinds of books) didn’t think the jokes were funny.

    But, you know, different likes for different tykes.

  8. Daniel Werneck says:

    I’m really glad “Beasts of Burden” won, it’s such a fine book and yet so many people don’t know it yet. I hope this award will help the book get some more well-deserved attention.

  9. My daughter, now nine, has been reading Tiny Titans since it began… So, three years? She doesn’t know 80 years of DC continuity and knew few of the characters when it began, but she loves them all now. you should see the grade schoolers who show up at art and franco’s signings or at their con booth. Kids love the book.

  10. Leaky : Couldn’t agree with you less. I think Tiny Titans hits the right note on some many levels. Scott Snyder’s American Vampire is fresh and engaging. I thought I was “done” with Vampires, but this compelling story keeps me on board. Both titles are fun, courageous and deserving.

  11. Snikt Snakt says:

    Its nice to see Thor TMA winning so many awards, it was a great book IMO.

    Its too bad its only appreciated after it gets CANCELLED. :-(
