I still don't know whether the WCCA Best Newcomer award is for new comic or for new person(s) but either way with all of the comics coming out in 2006 I'm sure it was tough to get a nomination this time (link to nominations here). Let's post some suggestions for comics that started in 2006 that you're surprised didn't get a nomination.
I'll start with Home On The Strange which is pretty consistently funny and does a good job of tackling messy romantic geek life. I'm not saying HOTS was robbed but I wouldn't have been shocked if it had been nominated either.
What else have you(s) got?
