  1. Torsten Adair says:

    Best Related Work (584 nominating ballots cast)
    Chicks Dig Comics: A Celebration of Comic Books by the Women Who Love Them, Edited by Lynne M. Thomas & Sigrid Ellis (Mad Norwegian Press)


  2. Ralf Haring says:

    The comics category is a bit uninspiring. Saga and Grandville Bête Noire were competent but rather underwhelming compared to the creators’ prior work. It seems like a weak year in general. Perhaps Manhattan Projects: Science Bad or Casanova: Avaritia or Prophet: Remission.
