Sana Takeda won the “Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (interior art)” award again this year and James Tynion IV won in the “Best Writer” category.

For the second year in a row the Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award went to an Image Comics creator—the exciting up-and-comer Zoe Thorogood—whose It’s Lonely At the Centre of the Earth has garnered much critical acclaim and buzz this year.
