    I'm happy to see Darwyn Cooke getting some love, and the American Born Chinese guy.

    James Jean's covers on Fables are great, but I really wanted JG Jones to win for covers this year.

    He really deserved it, I mean, 52 covers in one year?

    and not a single bad one?

    Personally, I like to think they're all winners.

    But they don't have enough plaques to go around.

    That's the only thing I saw wrong this year. JG should have gotten the cover award

    Have you seen James Jean's covers, though? They're really fucking good.

    I'm not saying they are not great, because they are. JG was just greater

    I agree with a lot of those. Brubaker's been on a tear lately, and Batman/Spirit was stupendously fabulously awesome.
