Right, because I want to, here's my very own "Best of" for 2007. I'm far too uncritical and have included up to three winners in each catagory...
Kings of Leon
Leeds Thought Bubble
Camden Comics Stall (guaranteed good times EVERY SATURDAY)
BEST SMALLPRESS COMICS

In This Half Remembered World I Dream Of Love by Oli Smith

I also have to include Donkey Head by Daniel Baker and Space Babe by John Maybury.
John's someone who's going places in the next few years.
BEST BREAKTHROUGH ACT

MY FELLOW AMERICANS 2008
Tom Humberstone AKA Vented Spleen and Dan Hancox draw and write of their experiences on the 2008 US presidential election trail. Here.
London Underground Comics bring you their very own brand of creator run comic conventions!
DAN LESTER'S MURDER MYSTERY
A new ongoing series (ongoing as in we'll put out maybe two issues a year) with the Monkeys Might Puke mastermind. It's Dan in murder mystery situations like only he can do it. And I'm drawing it.
"BLOC" WITH OLI SMITH
Oli's finally written something good that isn't about himself. And it's not just good, it's ruddy wicked and I'm drawing it.
TALES FROM THE FLAT #7
We're starting a story that'll climax around our shocker 10th issue. In 2008 TFTF will blow your mind. And I'm drawing it.
MY 24HOUR COMIC
Just because everyone else is doing it and I have a tiny idea of what I might do.
MORE CURTIS AND TERRORIST
I leave you with art from an upcoming (and still untitled) Modern Monstrosity horror anthology-type-thing which I'm doing with Jake Harold. It involves stories of aliens, nazi robots and (as shown here) cheerleaders fighting zombies. Just what comics were made for.
Happy New Year everyone! See you in 2008.
