I don’t understand why continuing and limited series are in the same category. That’s like the Oscars having the short and feature length films share the awards.

It’d have been for “most inter-company crossovers”.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

GABRIEL BA ROCKZZZZ

BRAZILIAN PRIDE!!!

The only one I have an outright problem with was Y: The Last Man #60 winning the best single issue. I don’t care what anyone says, that was a bullcrap ending to a wonderful series.

Nice, lots of great winners there. Especially liked Ba, Y: The Last Man #60 and Nat Turner.

I agree. I love Y, but #60 isn’t very good.
