I’m surprised that O’Malley and Cornell are nominated as newcomers. The first volume of SCOTT PILGRIM (of six total) was released in 2004, and O’Malley had published work before then. Cornell has been writing comics off-and-on for 15 years, and his popular WISDOM series at Marvel came out in 2006. Maybe “newcomer” indicates a rise in status during the past five years?

Anyway, interesting list. Good luck to the nominees.

Seriously? “Gregg Rucker?” It’s like someone spelled it phonetically over the telephone with the Super Bowl in the background. Doesn’t anyone fact check for spelling on these ballots?

i think that the scott pilgrim books have only recently been published in the UK. all of my scott pilgrim books were published by oni press in america except for the last one which was published here by 4th estate so maybe bryan lee o’malley counts as a newcomer because none of his work has been published here until recently, which would be a weird system as all of his previous work has been available here for the same amount of time it’s been available in the states.

then again maybe they just waited until scott pilgrim finished so they could count it as one work (a completely forgot about lost at sea and his inking work on queen and country).

favourite writer/artist; choosing between bryan lee o’malley, mike mignola, darwyn cooke and gabriel ba/fabio moon was one of the hardest things i’ve done ever. (no disrespect meant to jeff lemire, i haven’t read anything he’s illustrated, just superboy) definitely my favourite cartoonists working today.
