Each year  Diamond Comics Distributors names their Diamond Gem Awards to Publishers based on  "quality, creativity, and overall sales impact".  The nominations are then voted on by comic book specialty retailers that subscribe to Diamond's service.

DC Comics has once again swept away the prestigous Publisher of the Year for the "Over 4% Market Share" category.  

DC Comics also took the Backlist Publisher of the Year Award.

Always-The-Bridesmaid Marvel Comics, who had their last win in 2008, managed to snag the Top Dollar Comic Book Publisher award for Amazing Spider-Man #700, featuring  the soon-to-be-retconned "death of Peter Parker" that raped fan-boy pockets with a whopping $7.99 price gouge.

When reached for comment, a Marvel representative stated "we have high hopes for next year when Diamond hopefully will add a category we can win in, like Marketing Strategy Most Likely  Developed By Catty Teenage Girls". 

Full details and a list of other gracious winners can be found in this article by Newsarama.
