The temperature may be dropping outside, but things are sure heating up at your local comic shop, especially if you’re a DC Comics fan. This pre-Christmas week brings with it a whole bunch of holiday treats, including some highly anticipated installments from a few of our heavy hitters.
The 2011 JOE SHUSTER AWARD nominees for outstanding achievements of Canadian comic book creators, publishers and retailers were announced today.

Torres and Jeff Lemire, who was nominated in a total of three categories: Outstanding Comic Book Cartoonist, Outstanding Comic Book Cover Artist and Outstanding Comic Book Writer. Congratulations to all the nominees.
Millison and Morrigan. Morrison and Milligan. However you say it, those bizarre boys are at it again, and all is right with my world. Whenever these guys write for Vertigo, everyone stops and listens because these two most insanely talented, too smart for our own good know what gutsy, passionate stories are all about. They hold the big V record for writing the most creator-owned series for Vertigo, and certainly the most diverse and out-there.
