Why haven't we done our own comics awards for 2015? Sure, some of the winners are probably pretty predictable but it'd still be fun to try and then compare with other similar lists.
>>
>>78672449
Isn't there usually an end of year /co/ awards thing?

Are we skipping that this year or does it happen later than I remember?
>>
>>78672449
It's all just a popularity contest.

>wanting another Forever Evil fiasco

>>78672449
Superior Memes of Spider-Man won before

its a meaningless list that just gets overrun with marvel fags
>>
>>78672449
Reminder that /co/ voted that Forever Evil was the Best Graphic Novel of 2013.

Reminder that /co/ voted that Spider-Island was the Best Graphic Novel of 2011.

This is why we should never do this again.
>>
I'll write in for OMD

Just go look at the Reddit poll. They read the same comics as we do.

They like Multiversity, we like Multiversity. They like Tom King, we like Tom King. They like Saga, we like Saga. It's all the same.

>Why hasn't /co/ done an awards thing?
Because all it will be is a bunch of nerds whining about how everything sucks. And that's like, every day here.
>>
>>78672708
>reddit has better taste than /co/
wow
>>
>>78672708
All three of those things are shit and memes
>>
>>78672708
>Reddit and 4chan are more alike than we want to admit
NO IT'S NOT TRUE
>>
>>78672721
It's literally the same comics that /co/ votes for.

/co/ has also voted comics like Saga and Hawkeye as COTY in previous years.
>>
last time we did it Forever Evil won comic of the year is why

>Reddit doesn't have a single graphic novel in the Best Graphic Novel category
Reddit == 4chan
4chan == Reddit

>>78672522
Whatever loser that does it decided not to do it.
>>
>>78672522
I think we usually do it a few weeks in, but last year so many people raged and complained the guy that had been doing it for the past 3 or 4 years said he wasn't going to bother again.
>>
>>78673783
What a faggot.
>>
>>78673857
There was a lot of whiny bitching.
>>
Nameless may take it for me, excellent series. Spooky as fuck.

Injection came together wonderfully.

WickDiv came apart.

Paper Girls, Klaus, James Bond, all promising.

Silver Surfer was fun with great art.

Saga's been good.
>>
>>78672560
aren't all art awards?
>>
>>78673891
Didn't he want to do a bunch of non-/co/ awards though? And he doubled down like a faggot and said everyone else was wrong when told that that's a dumb idea for what's supposed to be the /co/ awards.
>>
>>78673972
What happened is he made a lot of awards for adaptations like best cast, best lead actor, best supporting actress for adaption shows and adaption shows and adaption movies and then one award best movie in general.
And then complaints for days and then what you said happened.
>>
>>78673972
Pretty much that.
>>
I'd love to see the /co/ awards happen again, but they'd need to be run at least a bit better than the "/co/rganizer" who did it in previous years. Someone who is willing to listen about both comics and cartoons, unlike what we had last time.

2011 /co/ awards:
I can't remember what happened, although the winners were decent.
>/co/ voted for Slott

2012 /co/ awards:
>organizer realizes that all the results are predictable
>instead of releasing them, leaves quietly

2013 /co/ awards:
>organizer pretends to be a new guy, over the course of the organizing pretends the old guy contacted him (later admits they ran all of them, but whatever)
>organizer doesn't understand comics, proceeds to make bad categories, so that Forever Evil and other events are in the same category as graphic novels

2014 /co/ awards:
>organizer still can't into good comic categories
>organizer puts more effort into a "/co/'s favourite movies (including non-/co/ movies) of 2014" category than into making sure other categories are good
>gets buttmad when people ask why we have a /tv/ award, claims that it's his awards and he can do whatever
>finally acquiesces, but vows not to do the awards this year
>chooses a broken voting platform that forces people to rank things they haven't read/seen, as opposed to letting them vote for what they have read/seen

Oh /co/rganizer, how I miss your shenanigans.
>>
>>78672708
>They like Saga, we like Saga
wew lad
>>
>>78679292
Hey, I like Saga. I don't love it but I like it alright.
>>
>>78679292
Hello, newfriend. Do you know what comic /co/ voted for in 2014?
>>
>>78679795

>2013 Best Ongoing Comic Book Series -- Creator-Owned: Saga
>2014 Best Ongoing Comic Book Series (Creator-Owned): Saga

> DAREDEVIL (Marvel Comics)
> HAWKEYE (Marvel Comics)
> JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY (Marvel Comics)
> PROPHET (Image Comics)

Guess who won.

>>78680147

>Outstanding Ongoing Comic Book Series: Hawkeye
>Outstanding Special Comic Book Series or Graphic Novel: Godzilla: The Half-Century War
>Outstanding Writing in a Comic Book Series or Graphic Novel: Jeff Lemire, Animal Man; Mark Waid, Daredevil
>Outstanding Cover Art in a Comic Book Series or Graphic Novel: Batwoman

>>
>>78682453
>>Best Male Leading Character in a Comic Book Series/Graphic Novel
>>Best Female Leading Character in a Comic Book Series/Graphic Novel
This is dumb.
>>
>>78672449

Saga is babys first Indie though. It's pretty shit "If I have my characters swear and do drugs people will think my book is mature!" It's trash
>>
>>78683183
I like Saga to the extent that's it really the only good fantasy comic these days. I went into it knowing it would be character-focused, not world-building, and so I haven't been disappointed on that front.

the Auteur Sister Bambi was pretty great
KaijuMax and Nameless are up there too.
Id nominate Doctor Fate for best covers
>>
>>78683722
You're the first person I know who even remembers that Doctor Fate exists.

>>78672758
But your post is buzzwords.

Don't reply to the contrarian.

You're missing:
>Best Inker
>Best Colorist
>Best Miniseries (Creator-Owned)
>Best Miniseries (Licensed)
>Best Ongoing Comic Book Series (Licensed)
>>
>>78683183
I like it because it's full of imagination and the art is great.

I also like the story so far (I bought 2 volumes) and the characters. I'm thinking about buying volume 3 today.
>>
>>78672708
Valiant fans (all 5 of them?) tried rigging a couple of categories so they dumped them. :D
>>
>>78682453
I'll help you out here

>The Multiversity
>Tom King
>Saga
>>
>>78687915
I feel like Ms Marvel would be somewhere, too.

Pretty good list. Would love to use it.
>>
>>78672449
>Why haven't we done our own comics awards for 2015?
Because /co/ has shit taste.
>>
>>78690158
Get rid of the actor/actress awards in the animated section and the entire adaption section then you've got yourself a pretty decent list.
>>
>>78683183
I like it, but pretending it's groundbreaking or super creative is silly.
>>
>>78690158
Needs a "Best New Waifu" category. This is /co/ after all.
>>
>>78691117
I can get behind this. Maybe make one for comics, one for cartoons?
>>
>>78691117
Category /co/
>Best Waifu
>Best Husbando
>Best Meme
>Most Hated Anything of All Year
>>
>>78690158
>>78692787
I'd take part in this. Someone with web skills set it up.
>>
>>78679795
East of West was robbed
>>
>>78686643
Even better, they showed up on /r/comicbooks and tried to defend it as "we're just fans voting like everyone else!" and ignoring the obvious loophole.

And the forum (http://www.valiantfans.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=47241) that /r/comicbooks linked to is full of links asking people to vote spam on other sites
>>
>>78693764
Will try to, but SurveyMonkey is a confusing site.
