  1. @Mike, i tried to find out the complete written list of winners but my google-fu failed me.(i meant yours is the most complete report i found anywhere)

    Did you watch all 5+ hours of the awards live to write) it all down?

    Color me impressed, i just went and found the category in which i was interested and watched that only. (after partially reading your report here today upon wakefullness)

    Nowhere else did i find the results online-not even the Baltimore Con or Ringo Awards websites.

    Kudos, sir. (From the year 5258)

    PS Its Gene Luen Yang btw, unless they misspelled his name, who did Superman smashes the clan. (He presented the award in which i was interested that i watched)

  2. The Ringo Award FB page reported them live. I followed their announcements and switched back and forth to a couple other things, updating my post draft as they progressed.

    Still way impressive, as no comics news site i know of has reported even a single category winner yet(they typically take the weekend off, unless its a working weekend when they attend cons-uhh, non virtual cons i mean)

    Yeah, im impressed by your all hard work here and i think you’re doing a great work here, sir. Thanks for all your hard work.
