Frank Miller? For Holy Terror? Interesting…

Glad to see wins for both Lemire and Snyder. Two of my favorite writers at the moment. Nice to see Berger take a win too.

But Batman: Noel? Really? I mean apart from looking nice…. And Ross? … I cant stand his work. Every character looks the same. Same build – overweight. Same age – over 40. And thats including the women! haha…
