The Walking Dead, Vol. 12

Geoff Johns and The Walking Dead were among the winners of Spike TV’s fifth annual Scream Awards, presented Saturday in Los Angeles. The ceremony will be broadcast at 9 p.m. ET/PT Tuesday on Spike TV.

The awards, which honor the best is science fiction, fantasy, horror and comic books, feature three comics-specific categories. Johns was named Best Comic Book Writer for his work on DC’s Blackest Night, Brightest Day, The Flash and Green Lantern. The Walking Dead, by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn, won for Best Comic Book or Graphic Novel. Johns and Kirkman were there to receive their awards.

Curiously, I’ve been unable to track down the winner for Best Comic Book Artist. (The nominees were Charlie Adlard, Darwyn Cooke, Fabio Moon, Frank Quitely, Jill Thompson and J.H. Williams III.) Presumably a press release will be issued with Tuesday night’s broadcast.

Renowned author Ray Bradbury received the 2010 Comic-Con Icon Award.
