What are the Comics Buyer's Guide Fan Awards? Here is a blurb from there website:
For the past six years, we’ve offered fans the chance to nominate their favorite creators and projects of the previous year for our annual Comics Buyer’s Guide Fan Awards. Here are the finalists in each of the 12 categories for the 29th annual awards: the longest-running comic-book awards in which you, the fans, pick your favorites.


Our criteria for eligibility is that the creator nominated had to have work published in the year of eligibility or a given work had to have a 2010 publication date. Through May 31, each fan can cast his or her votes online. (Only one ballot per fan; ballot box stuffing will result in discarding all involved ballots.)
We’ll tally the votes in early June and announce the winners at CBGXtra.com and in CBG #1681 (Sep 11), shipping in early July.
