Chuck Collins’s webcomic Bounce, a gag comic about two New York bouncers, earned three awards: Best Comic Strip or Webcomic, Rising Star Award,and Fan Award for Best Work. The Story of the Year award went to Revelation: Brotherman – Dictator of Discipline, by writer Guy A. Sims and artist Dawud Anyabwile, and Anyabwile picked up the Best Artist award for that comic as well. (Here’s a great local-news story that gives some backstory on this comic and its creators.)
