Now, over to series writer and co-creator Scott Snyder to tell you what it means to him to win.

Austin Trunick here, resident WildStorm blogger over at Graphic Content's sister blog, The Bleed. I'm stepping in for a very special guest post, because we're talking about two things I hold so near and dear to my heart: Fiona Staples art and NORTHLANDERS. Knowing my fondness for these, Pamela's very kindly offered me the opportunity to unveil the first look at the artwork here on the blog.
