    It's December, and we all know what that means. Comic Book Readers Awards time!

    In December 2014 I got in touch with wonderfly and I got his OK to carry on this forum's annual comic book reader awards. As a participant in ALL of the awards since the very beginning, it is my honor to continue on the reader awards for this forum. In the previous years we did nominations threads, which led to a thin selection of choices to pick as best, where the best in the respective categories got tallied up and the most picks got a theme week thread once the awards concluded. Lets keep it simple this year, no nominations, and no theme weeks. EVERYONE IS A WINNER!

    In spirit of the nominations thread and final selection, try to narrow down your selection to one "official" pick. Multiple picks as honorable mentions are welcome as well (specify your official and honorable mention picks). However, for the "worst" categories, if you have more than one selection and can't narrow it down, then in that case I wouldn't mind multiple official selections. Singling out the one true official good/best is a challenge, but whatever a reader picks is ultimately earned/deserved. The worst/bad however, should be ALL be recognized since that selection isn't something to be proud of. But if you can narrow it down to one, that's fine too.

    Since I'm running the show here, I have come up with some new categories for you to pick from and resurrected some categories from the early years of the awards.

    Now lets get to it! Your categories:

    American Comic Book Related Categories:

    You don't have to fill in every category, and you can go back and make edits/alterations. Get your selections in by January 5th. Why January 5th? Because the first new comic day of 2016 is January 6th.

    After January 6th, I will tally up all the selections and declare any repeating picks as winners in their respective categories.
