2017 Scott Dunbier Awards

A new year is upon us and that means 2017 is complete and we can vote on the Artist’s Edition format books published in the past twelve months. The voting is done through internal polling, which limits votes by IP address and cookie. Voting is open from January 1 to January 31, with the final results posted Thursday February 1.

The survey is all text based; here is a cover gallery of all 2017 Artist’s Edition format books, nineteen in total. We removed “most disappointing” this year and added “purchased in 2017” to see how many AE format books people purchased.
