Comic Vine Best Of 2008 Awards

It's the end of the year. Time to choose the winners and losers of the past year. User and Staff pics will be featured.

The top secret feature I've been busily working on the past few days if finally ready.  It's the end of the year so now is the time for us to all be judgmental and choose the winners.  I only had time for fifteen categories.  You guys will get to vote on the same categories.  User winners and my personal choices will be revealed each day.  You can only vote one time. 

The first categories will be revealed on Saturday December 27th early in the morning.  Start voting under USER PICKS.  You can also campaign for your favorites by commenting and trying to convince others why they should vote the same way you are.

Have fun.  I hope you enjoy this.

You can begin by going HERE.

I can't figure out how to vote. I go to the list of nominees and I click on the one I want to vote for and it brings me to their page, am I doing it incorrectly?

Wait nvm, I figured it out, forgot to read your post :P

the images are displayed via our database id of the entry, and it centers them by default. this can be good/bad depending on how you look at it. ;)

i'm looking into a better way to display them.

Captain Cascader and Super Coonce built the tools before leaving for Australia (and not explaining it all to me).  Maxwell offered helped with styling and other odds and ends.  Red L.A.M.P. gave his approval on the Hottest Female category. 

You will notice that all the images are centered on the...center of the image.  I did note that it would make things interesting when it came to the final category.  The nominees were chosen mainly on how talk there was around here and what I felt like adding.  I tried going through the entire year of comics and events to get everyone included, or at least the major players.  I'm sure I may have omitted some obvious or deserving nominees but after spending about eleven hours yesterday finishing setting up the categories, setting up the voting, etc, I just did what I could.  And ladies, I apologize for Hottest Male not making it as a category.  Time simply ran out and I wanted to get this out to you guys as soon as possible.  Maybe next year.

G-Man already apologized for the lack of one, but I don't think there's any time to add one anymore, the year's over and the polls will be closed soon, he said maybe he'll add it next year though

I would've loooved to add more categories.  I had others in mind including hottest male.  I'm all about the equality.  Would hottest male get the same number of votes as hottest female?  Probably not but that's not the point.  I was going out of my mind trying to set it all up.  I'm bummed I couldn't get more categories up there.  But the reality of it was it was just me setting everything up.  With doing all that plus trying to get all the news up, I just ran out of time.

Posted by Methos

roflol... what the f**k...

The Sinestro Corps War.... the actually best selling comic arc of 2009 according to sales figues... and it's not even nominated for Best Story Arc?

wtf... i demend a recount lol

M

Edited by G-Man

Sinestro Corps War only had 2 issues with a 2008 cover date.

Also this is why I asked moderators for suggestions for nominees but I didn't get any...

I thought overall the nominess selections were solid...
Posted by aztek_the_lost

I think you should have had worst publisher of the year as a category...though I admit I would really have a hard time choosing between Broadsword and Marvel

First Born = 2007.  That's why Broken Trinity was a nominee.

Yeah, hottest male too, man! & what about ugliest man/woman?

You really get the runaround trying to figure out exactly how to vote >:(

Personal nominees for hottest male:
*Gambit.
*Mr. Sinister.
*Angel/Archangel.
*Joker (he's about as good as DC gets in that area).
*Mad Hatter (Zenescope, the 2ed or the 3ed, but not the one Carroll kills).
*Ian Nottingham.
*Azrael.
*Darkness.
*Gambit.
*Gambit.
*Gambit.

If you're talking about your zillion multiple accounts, it won't allow it.  You're votes are tracked.  It'll look like it's accepted but it's not.   I can't remember if voting more than once negates all your votes or not.  So, as I mentioned, vote wisely.

damn johns lost by a single vote

Posted by G-Man

Too bad there wasn't more voting.

Staff
Posted by Nighthunter

agreed

also I thought of a possible new category for next year, it could be very difficult to make but maybe you can make it happen

Best Cover of the year

on top of that I think that best ongoing and best miniseries (that ain't an event) should also have their categories

Posted by G-Man

Best cover...could be done.  I think maybe I just need to open it up to some nominations before.  This was kinda sprung on me last minute and the two dudes that wrote the code took off for Australia so I had to figure things out myself.  I had a bunch of other categories I really wanted to do but just ran out of time.  I wanted to give enough voting time and have the results trickle until the end of the year.
