2019 Dunbier Awards

A new year is upon us and that means 2019 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 winners posted February 1.

These annual awards are named for Scott Dunbier, who at IDW created the Artist’s Edition format in 2010. They are meant to shine a spotlight on the format and the works published in the previous year. Previous winners: 201520162017, 2018.

The survey is all text-based; here is a cover gallery of all 2019 Artist’s Edition format books, six in total. To qualify, an AE format book must have been published and released through Diamond, using its ship date. Click the name to go to the full review.
