THE BEST IN COMICS: Time to vote from these nominees...

By Michael Cavna

In recent weeks, Comic Riffs asked readers to nominate their favorite comics and animations from 2010. From webcomics to feature films, we received hundreds of Riffy Award nominations, from which we've culled the finalists that received the most mentions.

So here they are, the nominees in four categories, based only on work that appeared last year. We invite you to vote for your favorite from the finalists. (*This poll, we should note, is nonbinding; void where prohibited; yadda yadda.)

Voting will be open till 11:59 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 15. UPDATE: And on Friday morning, we announced the six finalists for Best Comic (Any Medium) of 2010. To pick the big 2011 Riffy Award, Vote HERE.

Here they are, your 2010 Riffy Award finalists:





NOTE: Here are links to the nominated webcomics:

Hey, how come no categorie for Comic Panels?

Why can't Speed Bump, Bizarro, etc. be considered?

Both "Speed Bump" and "Bizarro" were eligible -- and received some votes -- for Best Print Comic.

Hi there: I voted for favorite print comic OK. Then I viewed all the web comics using the links you posted above. Some of the sites were a real slog of popup ads and some of the archives don't work so well. Anyway, when I was trying to view Penny Arcade I clicked by mistake on a link and after closing all the popups I ended up with my display theme being changed (wierd!). So I changed it back but when I went to vote for my favorite web comic (Pighorn) I couldn't because somehow it had already recorded my "vote" but I don't know for which one. I'm guessing it was Jesus and Mo - which is one of the worst you have up for consideration and yet it has the highest number of votes by far. For what it's worth I did like Pighorn and xkcd in that order.
