Creator messages keep poring in.....

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:

==================
I'd like you to consider Zombie Bomb! Vol 1-4 for best Comic Anthology. The Zombie Bomb anthology is made up of over 200 creators, from Legends like Shawn McManus, Neil Vokes, Jack Herman, to Major talent like Tomm Coker, Craig Rousseau, Khary Randolph, Paul Maybury, Chris Giarrusso, and Chris Moreno, to up and coming creators like Jason Copland, Blair D. Shedd, and Tom Whalen. This amazing undertaking was put together by Rich Woodall and Adam Miller, and their dedicated editorial / production staff, and published by Terminal Press. If you like a well rounded anthology that has a little something for everyone, and you like to support independent comics. Please consider us for best Anthology!

Thank you for your time.
Rich Woodall
===================

Please consider UNCLE SILAS: GENETIS for Best Graphic Novel for Younger Readers. I also wrote, drew and coloured the whole thing, so any other categories it's eligible for you can submit it to as well :)

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 http://guysoftheuniverse.com, and can send a link to the full pdf if need be.

Thank you,
Scott Zirkel

For your consideration

From our comments section, we have some messages from potential nominees. We are willing to publish promotional messages for any creator. This is not an endorsement :

----------

Since my Twitter feed is private, allow me to humbly suggest for BEST BIOGRAPHICAL, HISTORICAL, OR JOURNALISTIC PRESENTATION the essay collection GRAVEN IMAGES: RELIGION IN COMIC BOOKS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS. Not only does it feature a cover by Carla Speed McNeil, but it also includes thoughtful, readable essays by a range of scholars as well as creators like Douglas Rushkoff, G. Willow Wilson, Saurav Mohapatra, and myself. Best yet, you can peruse a preview free online: http://bit.ly/harveysample . Thanks for considering us on your ballots!

-----------

Thanks for putting this together -- the CBGB Comic Book by Boom! Studios really rocked -- it was different, ground breaking, authentic, and it kicked butt because it put together an awesome collection of writers and artists. - Robert Steven Williams

------------

Thanks for your continued interest! 5 days 6 days till ballots due!
