It looks like the awards are announced in May in Philly?

I was trying to sort out how the GCAs worked - the nominees were picked by a panel of judges (probably rotates each year?):

  • Rich Watson, GCA Committee Chair and writer for PopCultureShock.com
  • Johanna Draper Carlson, founder of the review website ComicsWorthReading.com
  • Pam Noles, professional writer and former Eisner Awards judge
  • Calvin Reid, senior editor for Publishers Weekly and former Eisner Awards judge
  • Hannibal Tabu, online comics reviewer and professional fiction writer

But I couldn't tell who and how the actual award winners are picked.

On second thought, let's not go to Comixpedia. It is a silly place.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.
