    I’m pulling hard for Daytripper for Best Single Issue or Story. That’s a wonderful story.

    And I am always pulling for Darwyn Cooke.

    Really glad that both Landridge and Samnee won. Thor:The Mighty Avenger was an excellent series.

  3. Glad to see Landridge and Samnee getting so much praise, because they really deserve it.

    *Fingers crossed for a renewing of Thor: The Mighty Avenger*

    Daytripper and American Vampire are two books I love, so well deserved. I really need to check out those Parker books. I’m waiting for that Martini edition, which should hopefully be released soon.

    American Vampire – 2011 Eisner and Harvey Award Winner for Best New Series!! A well deserved feat!

  6. kennyg kennyg says:

    Congrats to all, especially those creators who are active on this site as readers and posters. Nice to see Rocketeer got some love. I was pulling for Cullen Bunn for best writer.

  7. I know the Eisner’s are the big awards in comics. Are the Harvey’s the 2nd most prestigious? I can’t keep track LOL.

    But I am SUPER happy that Beasts of Burden won! I am IN LOVE with that book!

    Whoever voted on these awards has good taste. Love seeing recognition for Thor: The Mighty Avenger and Blacksad.

  9. Apparently Stan Lee was very funny while accepted his award last night. Shame we have no footage of it…
