It sure did. Totally deserved it. I wish O'Malley bagged Best Writer\Artist over Eric Powell, but I can't see any other things I'd disagree with strongly. Nice to see I Killed Adolf Hitler win something.

I disagree with this:

Best Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team: Pia Guerra/Jose Marzan, Jr., Y: The Last Man (Vertical/DC)


Would rather have seen any number of illustrators get the nod:

Steve Epting, Goran Parlov, Sean Phillips, Ron Garney, Frank Quitely, etc.

As far as I know, it's for best Penciler/Inker or Penciler/Inker Team. An artist who draws and inks his own work is eligible.

Otherwise, it's a stupid category and eliminates the most talented illustrators in the biz.

EDIT: And guys like Garney, Parlov, Epting, and Phillips have all inked their own pencils.

No it isnt. It says right in the category "Best Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team"

I don't. Pia Guerra is GREAT! Y the Last Man would have stunk without her.
SHABBA!

Ah, yeah.

Either way.. it's understandable that they would get it, with Y ending.

I am incredibly happy for Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba, they deserved that award.

Gerard has always wanted to write comics and now...he's an eisner award winner.

Awesome for Ed Brubaker and Eric Powell.

Was JLA #11 really that good? Didn't it focus on Roy Harper? :?

I agree that JLA #11 was not that impressive in my opinion. Didn't the one shot with Cyborg Superman come out this last year. That was all kinds of wonderful, IMO.

Here are the nominees:
Best Single Issue (or One-Shot)

* Amelia Rules!#18: "Things I Cannot Change," by Jimmy Gownley (Renaissance)
* Delilah Dirk and the Treasure of Constantinople, by Tony Cliff (self-published)
* Johnny Hiro #1, by Fred Chao (AdHouse)
* Justice League of America#11: "Walls," by Brad Meltzer and Gene Ha (DC)
* Sensational Spider-Man Annual: "To Have or to Hold," by Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca (Marvel)

Personally I really liked the Sensational Spider-Man Annual and think it should have won.

Reading up on Amelia Rules! #18 sounds like it would be pretty good as well.
