  2. I am really, really thrilled that Snarked! was nominated. Only thing, it was published by Boom! Studios, not IDW. I want to make sure people get that right, because Boom were really super-supportive and deserve a lot of credit. But Yay!

      Fixed it here. Sadly it’s too late to fix the press release and ballots that have gone out. But if you win, we will be sure to make to get it correct on the physical award! Congrats!
