    This is what I did with the choices I had available, although there were more than a few cases where I wish there was a write-in category. Still, though, J.H. Williams III on Detective Comics has blown just about every other artist out of the water this year. Kevin Nowlan continues to impress, frequently on Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez's superior pencils. Todd Klein is a master inker. Amazing Spider-Man has been one of the most consistent books on the market for the past two years (which is saying something, given the high publishing schedule and the rotating creative teams). So I'm not too crushed with these choices.

    (But if I could shove Kieron Gillen in there a few times it would be nice. Also, Christina Strain for colorist please.)

  2. Thanks for sharing, Shane. If you're still in the voting mood, and appreciate classic horror and monsters you can vote between now and April 4 for 2009 favorites at
