    Marvel never seems to receive many nominations.

    Maybe they're not considered among the more innovative?
    Been called a 'good egg'. Been told to rock, been told to steady myself. Been told to (please) be goin' places.
    Chillingly good stuff besides Mignola, Slint, M, Knut and really big chunks of tinfoil?
    Half sunk in the mud, with one eye showing / a cracked smile and hair still growing /
    your hands miles apart, as if they'd never met / you were the happiest I'd seen you yet

    Nah, they got a bunch of these before, but apparently, they didn't lobby, so they didn't get.

    So that's how that works? Only people who want them ('enough') get these awards?
    Well, you will know better than me I suppose. As I dunno much about 'the biz'.

    All I know is I rather hate professional lobbyists, pesky like doorstep salespeople or cheap colognes... Don't trust 'em.

    I'm glad for most of these nominees seeming innovative at least.
    Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart are in there again, which seems rather right to me.

    Marvel isn't innovative, that's true. Klaus Janson is nominated as inker for Amazing Spider-man.
    But as a man familiar with half or more of the nominations, I have to agree that they are good comics and I can't think of Marvel Comics that could qualify more.
    Are the people complaining even familiar with the nominees?

    Mostly in that any award for pencilling that Steve Epting isn't nominated for...

    Geoff Johns for Blackest Night? hahhahhahah. It was an OK event, but no where near worthy of a nomination

    Have these voters ever heard of Grant Morrison?

    Frank Quitely being nominated for cover artist ahead of Marko Djudjervic or Dave Johnson seems pretty far-fetched to me.

    Geoff Johns? Huh, really?

    I'm not really sure this has been Morrison's year, to be honest.

    Blackest Night was one of the top 5 series of last year? Right...
    That's right! Al Gore invented the internet, let's all go kick his ass!
