Another year in comics has come and gone, and while 2020 itself was hardly a prize-winner in any respect, that won't stop your dauntless docents at CGS from trying to make the "Best Of" it! You guessed it, it's time for the Comic Geek Speak Best of 2020 Awards, and time for YOU, our listeners, to take part in the nominations process! Here are the categories:
BEST NEW HERO or HERO TEAM (debut in 2020)
BEST NEW VILLAIN or VILLAIN TEAM (debut in 2020)
BEST NEW COMIC (first issue shipped in 2020)

BEST ONGOING COMIC (need not have begun publication in 2020)

BREAKTHROUGH TALENT OF 2020
To participate, submit your ballot via e-mail to [email protected]
by 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, Feb. 28, 2021. Please make a nomination in AT LEAST EIGHT of the above-listed categories, and select only ONE nominee per category! Whatever receives the greatest number of listener nominations in each category will be included on the final ballot along with the Geeks' own nominees, and there will then be one last round of voting after that to choose our overall Best of 2020.
If you'd like to share your list of nominees publicly, please feel free to do it here in this thread, but be aware that posting such lists here DOES NOT COUNT as voting; you must submit your ballot via e-mail for it to be counted as part of the official listeners' nomination process!
Thanks in advance for your input, everyone! We appreciate your help in our annual attempt to accentuate the comics-positive in the wake of a year that was all too negative. If you have any questions, send me a PM or just ask 'em here.
