    These nominations need some serious expansion, i cant take this seriously as it is.
    Even Mr. Wolfer seemed annoyed with it on Bleeding Cool, and his work has been nominated!

  • Mikewolfer1

    “Mr. Wolfer (‘s)… work has been nominate” In my opinion, my work has been erroneously nominated. A creator certainly can’t be too excited about having his or her work continually referred to as, “sexist.” Hooray for me and all of my hard work trying to change the public perception that LADY DEATH has no integrity or merit.

    Yeah some of these awards are stupid as hell. wtf? Offensive…
