    While IDW, Image and DC scored big with nominations, Marvel didn't make out too well. The nominations they did get were good ones though: Chip Zdarsky for the best writer (with Daredevil, Spider-Man: Life Story among the credits), Immortal Hulk and Daredevil for Best series and Doctor Doom for best new series.

    I'm very happy to see two nominations for Lewis Trondheim. I love Maggy Garrisson. If you're a fan of British cinema of the 80s and 90s (movies like Mona Lisa or The Crying Game), give this a look.
