Shane Jiraiya Cummings has posted a good list of eligible works over at:
He has noted that my two issues of ASIM from last year are eligible for Best Pro Production – not sure what the committee ruling on that will be (I didn’t live here when the issues came out, although I moved here while Issue 31 was still the current issue!). Depending on what the committee rules, I also have an artwork (fan, not paid) in issue 27 🙂
