Nominees for the comic book industry's biggest awards were announced today, and plenty of Portland creators and publishers made the list. The winners will be announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego in July, but here are the locals who snagged nominations:

Kelly Sue DeConnick: Nominated for best writer for beautifully creepy Western Pretty Deadly.

Matt Fraction: DeConnick's husband Matt Fraction is also nominated for best writer (oooOOOooo), plus he picked up nominations for his super-fun Hawkeye, his super-silly Sex Criminals, and for the great Hawkeye issue "Pizza Is My Business," about a dog who loves pizza.

Paul Tobin: The writer shared a nomination for best limited series with artist Juan Ferreyra for the Dark Horse title Colder.

Dave Stewart: The local colorist has won like a gajillion Eisners; he's nominated this year for his work on Dark Horse titles including Abe Sapien and Hellboy: Hell on Earth.

Greg Rucka: Lazarus, the science-fiction series writer Rucka created with artist Michael Lark, got a best series nomination.

Dark Horse Comics: Venerable publisher Dark Horse Comics cleaned up in the best limited series category, with nominations for The Black Beetle: No Way Out by Francesco Francavilla; 47 Ronin by Mike Richardson and Stan Sakai; and the aforementioned Colder. They also received two nods for kids’ books, for Itty Bitty Hellboy (aww) by Art Baltazar and Franco, and The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks; plus nominations for best anthology (Dark Horse Presents, edited by Mike Richardson) and best reissue (The Creep, by John Arcudi and Portland artist Jonathan Case).

Top Shelf: The Portland publisher snagged two nominations (best teen work and best reality-based work) for March (Book One), by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell. The publisher was also nominated for best reissue for Heck, by Zander Cannon.


Here's the full list; holler if I missed anyone.

UPDATE!: I missed one! A big one. Portlanders Christopher Sebela and Ibrahim Moustafa were nominated for both best new series and best digital/web comic, for their series High Crimes, published by Monkeybrain.
