Ed Brubaker

Additionally, Marvel would like to congratulate the Marvel creators who brought home the gold, including writer Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips, who won the "Best New Series" award for their acclaimed crime drama CRIMINAL and letterer Todd Klein, who won the "Best Lettering" award for his work on a number of series, including ETERNALS and FANTASTIK FOUR: 1602. Legendary Eternals scribe Neil Gaiman was also a big winner, as he was presented with the Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award.
