Japan's Gaiman Awards nominates New Avengers' Civil War arc for prizes

The Asahi Shimbun says the Gaiman Awards, given to comics published outside Japan and translated into Japanese for local readerships, has nominated Brian Bendis's New Avengers tie-in from Civil War for something it doesn't deserve:
The nominated works include "New Avengers: Civil War" from the United States, BD comic "The Eyes of the Cat," "Goliath" from Britain and "Now" from South Korea.
Bad choice. Curious that they're only doing it now, about 6 years after it was published, when the story's long ceased to generate blips on anybody's radar. If they elect this travesty for a prize, they'll have confirmed that the Gaiman Awards are a joke.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
