Judges Choice Where members of the Committee could recognize any overlooked excellence...

Batman: Arkham City (Amoebas)
Having never experience Arkham Asylum, but hungry for a new game, I picked this up and within 5 minutes of playing, I knew this was something different. While the actual plot of city-sized jail is hard to swallow, the graphics and game play are exceptional and the voice acting is just perfect! If this is truly Mark Hammil’s farewell to the Joker, it was a doozy! Guest stars aplenty with a ton of great villains along the way (Killer Croc had me jumping out of my seat the first time he popped up from under the sewer water). Challenges and tests range from easy to (three or four that just seem) impossible, but not enough to ruin the game at all. For being more fun and addicting than the last few nyears worth of non-Snyder Batman books, Arkham City was a highlight of 2011.

David Liss (Blue Streak)
There seems to be less and less focus on the art of storytelling in comics. With many creators choosing to center their stories around shocking plot twists and "kewl" moments, David Liss stands out as one of the few creators to actually build a story organically. In both Mystery Men and Black Panther: Man Without Fear, Liss crafted a strong story with compelling plots and characters. While neither series had explosive, water-cooler moments, both were exceptionally well-written and showcased a level of talent that’s missing from most comics today. If there’s one writer who needs more work in the industry, it’s David Liss.

DC Reboot (Eli Katz)
I genuinely thought this was going to be a shit show, but, for the most part, DC has impressed me with the way it has brought some much-needed life and energy to its characters. That I look forward to a Superman book again is a welcome surprise. It has literally been decades since I’ve read the Man of Steel with any interest. And that books like Animal Man and Swamp Thing are being handled by major talents makes my fanboy heart glow.

Death of Spider-Man (Gheru)

Supergods (GLX)
It’s a fascinating look at not only how Grant Morrison views the industry, but into his life as well.

Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 (e_galston)
It has been such a fan requested sequel, that to actually have it be released is amazing. Sure some fan favorite characters didn’t return (Cyclops, Megaman, Gambit and Venom are frequently requested), but the variety of Marvel characters is amazing. From obvious choices for a fighting game (X-23 and Iron Fist) to out there choices (Rocket Racoon and MODOK), there are characters for everyone. It also shows off some of the "lesser" heroes in the Marvel Universe. You gotta love a video game where you can play as Rocket Racoon and MODOK.

It's good to see Jonah Hex get one of the three nods for best single issue. It was the only title I gave a perfect 10 to in the review group this year.

I agree with BlueStreak about David Liss.

Generation Lost was the last good DC book I read.

Hard to argue with these choices, and to top it off, Chris Claremont in the hall of fame. Awesome.

I think Hall of Fame was a bit of a disappointment this year. During the nominating and voting, it seemed like it was more about 'fan favorites' than it was about recgonzing the legends of the field.

Creators like Alan Davis, PAD or JRJR getting more attention than the likes of Mart Nodel, Curt Swan, Bill Finger, Mort Wesinger, CC Beck, Carl Barks, Harvey Kurtzman, Bill Gaines, Bob Haney, Nick Cardy, etc? It's just a head scratcher.

Still, there's nothing wrong with Davis, David, Claremont, etc being nominated and/or winning - I just imagine someone like George Perez saying "I made it in before the actual people who created the Teen Titans? That's weird."

I'm amazed that Perez got in before Steranko. :?
