Not the only ones, but I would say they had the advantage in them (and I would also say that both Girl Genius and Schlock Mercenary are somewhere not far from the final list of nominees!).

I'm not sure which ones I'd want to see there that aren't also by Marvel or Image... Lazarus comes to mind...

Anyway, I'd vote Monstress if I was a Hugo voter ^^

I bet it won't be Ms. Marvel or Saga on the basis they've already won... Vision is a strong contender since it's a very classic SF in a way, examining what it means to be human/have a family.

I mean, Vision obviously, but the more interesting category is Short Form Drama, where clipping's album Splendor & Misery somehow got nominated.

So as usual, mainly Vox Day nominating himself and his publishing house.

I've never actually READ anything by Castalia House but on principle I'm inclined to never start.


Also I seriously wasn't sure if Deadpool was the joke nomination or not for film. Though even if it isn't its going to lose probably.

When the band realised their album was eligible they actively campaigned to be considered for a nomination, even going so far as to offer free copies of the album to hugo-eligible voters

I still think Omega Men got robbed of a nomination last year and the year before, so Tom King getting one for Vision would make up for it (plus Vision is fantastic in its own right).

I'm just glad Chuck Tingle got a nomination this year.
