The 2011 Graphic Novel Judges

Can I confess that I used to know one of the organizers for ComiCon and she kept trying to throw free tickets and parking passes at me? And someone who shall remain nameless kept making me turn them down because San Diego was a whole two-hour drive away (!) and maybe all those costumed hordes would scare the baby. Seriously. Because babies don't ever actually like seeing cartoon characters or anything. But I digress. This is graphic novels, a category judged by people who wouldn't turn down free ComiCon tickets if they were radioactive.
