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.

Ah, yeah.

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

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.
