Hope Scalped wins -- all due respect to the others, but Scalped is the best new comic book in YEARS.

And congrats to you as well, sir, for your own nomination. That's some rare air, up there with Whedon, Vaughan, Brubaker and Fraction, and it's just as well-deserved.

Good luck!

Congrats on the nomination, Jason.

You've got a ton of steep competition but--dammit, Scalped is a winner, man!

My fingers are crossed.

Haven't read Buffy (just finishing up Season 4).

Iron Fist is good, but definitely not Scalped good by any stretch of the imagination.

The Infinite Horizon, I've heard is less than stellar, probably just filler.

Haven't read Johnny Hiro, no opinion.

Scalped FTW

THE INFINITE HORIZON is a really good book. Worth checking out.

Wow. Completely deserved, of course...but that's two for two!

Congrats, Beeyotch !

These are all worthy of awards, but Scalped is simply the best choice to win.
One of the best books I've read in years and I'll keep reading for as long as you keep writing.

Scalped should definitely win. The more issues I read the deeper and more layered the story gets, the more complete and complex too with all those life intertwining to give one powerful narrative. Extravagantly great.
I can also see why you like Ellroy.
