Ledger Awards 2006 - Foreign Creator of the Year

I don't follow foreign creators with out much zeal anymore - i used to love Romita Jr's stuff, Peter David's stuff, a lot of mainstream creators - but then they started working on titles that just got ruined by decompressed storytelling and company marketing (crossovers). And on the indie side, where you used to get some sort of regularity, going to trades has meant long delays in releases and with the wait i just forget to pick titles up.

So I'm just going to list names of creators that have been behind comics i've liked - its not well considered or well researched but pretty off the cuff

  • Brian K. Vaughn (Ex Machina, Y the Last Man)
  • Naoki Urasawa (Monster)
  • Bryan Lee O'Malley (Scott Pilgrim)
  • Grant Morrison (All Star Superman)
  • Jeffery Brown (I can be small)
