Best Of 2010: Best Writer

Jordamus Prime 12/31/2010 Features, Reviews
Here at Comic Booked, we take our comics very seriously! 2010 has been an awesome year to be a comic book fan, but there has been so much going on that it’s hard to actually keep up with it all! That’s why we’re here to present you with our Best of 2010 Awards! Our writers selected what they considered to be the best releases of 2010 as Nominees, and after weeks of careful consideration and deliberation we’ve brought you our choices for the best of everything to do with comics that’s happened in the past year!
Here we have the Nominees for Best Writer of 2010-
 
Jordamus Prime Nominates- Mark Millar
Mark Millar has been a big name in comics for some time now, but in 2010 he really put himself out there. His self-titled universe, Millar-world, revolves entirely of characters of his own creation; something that is rarely achieved in today’s comic industry. Millar consistently pulls it off though, continuously creating new series that are hailed by critics and fans alike. With two well received new series (Nemesis and Superior) and film adaptation of one of his most celebrated works (Kick-Ass), Millar has been all over the place in 2010. Let’s not forget the first issue of the long awaited sequel Kick-Ass 2 hit the stands this year. Overall, Millar has been keeping his bases loaded this year with hit after hit. I’m almost afraid to see what amazingness he has in store for fans in 2011.

Colin Bell Nominates- Bryan Lee O’Malley
Bryan Lee O’Malley wrapped up his Scott Pilgrimsaga with Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour this year, a coming of age for both the title character and the author himself.  The fact that Scott Pilgrim has risen in stature from indie-kid Oni Press book to the Harry Potter of the comic geek generation WITH A MOVIE speaks volumes for the chord that O’Malley’s hilarious and engaging writing struck with its fans.

Andy Kirby Nominates- Ed Brubaker
Brubaker’s portrayal of the daily grittiness of Captain America allows our most beloved patriot the opportunity to shine for that which America truly stands.  Now he is tackling Marvel’s big dogs on Secret Avengers, showing us the underbelly of what even Bendis has been hesitant to do.

Nicole Sixx Nominates- Rick Remender
My choice for best writer goes to Rick Remender for The Last Days of American crime. A bloody piece of brilliant Pulp and All-American Lust and Violence set in California, this piece has future Cult Classic written all over it and I sincerely hope that there’s a director and cast out there to do it justice.

Skott of Fables Nominates-Bill Willingham
Bill Willingham for being able to keep the Fables series fresh and exciting for 100 issues. That’s not easy to do when you have a comic book series that features no super heroes or super powers.

      Any category that didn't have a clear winner had a winner selected from the nominees by a panel of judges.

        These "judges"….um they wouldn't have happened to start with a "J" and end with a "ordamus" would they?

        LOL

          Haha, while I won't deny having been part of that discussion, I didn't have final say. Far from it actually. I just got lucky and had picks that the judges agreed on.
