Show Your Love: Vote for Some Awesome Books

0

February: the month of love. Also, the second month of 2015. Now that we’ve got some distance from the wacky and wonderful (sometimes!) year that was 2014, it’s time to look back and show some love for comics creators and creations that stood out. Yup, it’s time for the Awesome Awards 2014: Books Edition!

The polls will close on February 20th at 11:59 pm EST, so you’ve got plenty of time to make your decision — I know it’s hard.
