The nominees are selected by peers, retailers, or fans and spread across the United States. All of them represent what Comic-Con director of marketing David Glazner refers to as, “The best of the best in comics retailing.”
The best of the best of the best will be chosen by a panel of judges, including Diamond UK’s Mike Holman, Bone creator Jeff Smith, Anina Bennett (Heartbreakers), BOOM Studios’ Chip Moser, and the last year’s winners Curtis Sullivan and Steve Fodale, co-owners of Vault of Midnight.
The actual ceremony will be held tonight (that’s Friday, July 22, for our Mississippi readers) at 8:30 in the Indigo Ballroom at the San Diego Bayfront. Attendance is free to Comic-Con badge holders and will be seated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
