Romita Jr. as best artist? WHAT…THE…F*CK??????????????

Just read my first volume of The Walking Dead last night. Definately not what I expected it to be. It is a brilliant read, with just the right amount of human drama, action and horror scenes. I look forward to collecting more volumes.

Can’t wait for the TV series to be released on DVD/Blu Ray here in Australia.

What was the Holy Shit Scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 that won the award?

Walking Dead TV show didn’t win any awards? That’s too bad. I mean I love GoT and I do like True Blood, but it’s a shame that such a great show doesn’t win any of these…

Milla Jovovich won an award? These awards lose more and more credibility every year.

John Romita, Jr., Chris Evans n Milla Jovovich… Hmmm. I get it… It’s a joke, right? kkkk

Ok, now give us the real list, plz.

Now, wait a second. Half the winners on this list I don’t quite agree with, but I actually like JR Jr. He even admits that he’s not THE greatest artist, but he’s certainly an artistic master at graphic storytelling (unlike some of the crappy artists that still manage to get work). I’m not saying any names or anything. (cough cough…Eric Canete…Jim Mahfood…cough cough).

JR JR is awesome!
