  1. Which idiot put Moore and Gaiman in the same half of the draw? And I was really hoping to see BKV and Morrison pull off an upset (sorry to Gaiman fans). However, was pleased to see Byrne and Claremont exit early.

  2. Jenkins beat Diggle in the first round! How did that happen? And someone really doesn’t like Morrison – did you see his draw? He had to beat Simone, Ellis and Brubaker to get to the QF’s. And who thought of pitting Simone against Morrison in the first round anyway?

  3. yeah, would have ideally liked the moore-gaiman thing to be the final. BKV, Willigham, Simone definitely deserved better than they got. Still, interesting format, really forces people to choose. The other half of the draw really a lot easier.

  4. hey, i like Ellis! not the greatest writer (like Moore), sure, but Transmet *is* brillo.

  5. damn, i wish the race between Moore and Gaiman was tighter. Gaiman is great. acknowledge that, fools! i should’ve voted for him.

  6. I voted for gaiman. It was a decision that kept me up all night but I did it. Went with the heart and not the brain.

    And Ellis. Most definitely a good writer. Transmet is ludicrously great and what about Planetary and Orbiter then?

  7. True Ellis is great, but he was unlucky to come up against the incredible Grant Morrison early on. In spite of Ultimate Fantastic Four, Stormwatch and Transmetropolitan, he couldn’t beat JLA, New X-Men, Seven Soldiers, Animal Man, We3, The Filth and The Invisibles.

  8. you missed out Arkham Asylum. i had no difficulty reading the lettering on that one. that’s also a fascinating book. positively menacing.

  9. can i say ‘positively menacing’? depends on who’s being the menace, i suppose.
