From the mailbag and the twitter feed...

We are willing to publish promotional messages for and from any creator promoting work published in 2010. This should not be seen as an endorsement :

From our inbox and the twitter search feed, in no particular order:

We’d love for you to consider nominating the CBGB Comic Book series by BOOM! Studios – four books that all sold out by established and new writers and artists. But don’t take our word for it, here's what those in the know said:

- “It's a comic that's definitely worth owning, and one that you can be certain is still going to be as relevant and enjoyable a decade from now as it is today... 5 Stars” – Comic Book Resources

- “Rock historians and comics fans alike are well-served... A-” – The Onion A.V. Club

- “Buy the book. You'll read it and enjoy it... Rating: 9/10” – Pop Matters

- "...a brave experiment... BOOM! has a winner on their hands here..." – Major Spoiler

- “... part history lesson, part homage and all nostalgic admiration... a comic like this is for anyone” – Pop Culture Network

- "If you are a fan of punk... or just a fan of really good comics, go pick up... CBGB from your friendly, neighborhood comic book store. Now. Rating: 5 / 5 Stars" – Fandomania

Thanks for considering our effort and for keeping the CBGB spirit alive for a new generation.

Robert Steven Williams and Louise Staley


I'd like to nominate my book, He-Guy and the Guys of the Universe, for best coloring. As that is the only part of the book I did not do, I feel comfortable nominating the colorist, Tracy Bailey. I have some example pages up at, and can send a link to the full pdf if need be.

Thank you,
Scott Zirkel
