I'm not going to pander for votes for myself, but the team involved in CI really deserves some recognition.
The categories that we are in (that I'm aware of) are:
Best Letter - Jaak Jarve - Jaak has done new letters on a number of the Classics issues, including my #129 featuring Davy Crockett and he did a beautiful job.
Best North American Series - Classics Illustrated (published by Jack Lake Productions)(prestige hardcovers published in the US by Papercutz)
Best UK Series - Classics Illustrated (published by Classic Comic Store Ltd.)
Best UK Publisher - Classic Comic Store Ltd.
Best European Series - Classics Illustrated (various affiliated publishers)
Best UK Reprint - Classics Illustrated #27 featuring Ben-Hur (Story- Lew Wallace, Art -Joe Orlando, Embellishments and colors - Mike Gagnon, Letters Jaak Jarve)
Best Colorist - Mike Gagnon (me)
I've invited a number of you creative and comic book types out there. I only ask that you consider us against the others when casting your votes and vote for what you feel is best.
The 5 nominees with the highest votes move on to the final voting round on March 14th.
