To the big boys overseas I will not grovel - Favourite Foriegn Comic Book Title or Graphic Novel

Favourite comic book or graphic novel (English or foreign language) released by overseas publishers during the year.

Scott Pilgrim
A complete blast to read. it truly is the definition, if not the essence of Awesome.

Solo #7
Mike Allred's issue. The Batman story was one of the more original versions of the Batman character and a good use of the Adam West/Dark Knight paradigm to tell a story about differing times and cultures.
In terms of story telling, the Doom Patrol Vs Teen Titans showed that sometimes compression is a good thing, you don't need to lead your audience by the hand and show them everything. People make connections between the panels and make up the story for themselves (you have to read it to get what i'm talking about - i hope)

Stray Bullets #39
I'm a sucker for Kurosawa tributes and i like the Amy Racecar issues of Stray Bullets.

Big Head
Just funny stuff.

Samurai Executioner
Not as perfect as Lone Wolf and Cub, but nothing in my mind ever will be that perfect. I’ve read the first 4 volumes and I still don’t see an overarching plot and it seems that every other story involves rape. The art is just simply beautiful and the writing captivating

Only one issue in but AllStar Superman was superheroawesome. And I’ll try and not suck up to another Ledger judge but Langrides Fing Fang Foom special was great.

But of course the idea is that other people nominate what they liked. There's plenty of time (nominations finish early january) so check out and buy stuff.
Otherwise get ye to the nomination forms and nominate.
