  1. I don't see how Chew doesn't clean house and sweep these categories. Not to take away from the other comics nominated because they're good too, but Chew created a new genre. From the art to the story to the well-defined characters, there's no better or original story being put out in any medium. Congratulations, these accolades are well-deserved.
