We received an email from Peter at ComicGeekSpeak podcast a few days ago letting us know that they have come out with their nominations for Best New in a number of categories, and they have placed Shakespeare in their “Villain” category. As Peter described to us in an email: “We described it less as a villain and more as Shakespeare’s presence over the entire book and how the character effects everyone else in the book.”
The full nomination list includes:
BEST NEW VILLAIN:
- White Canary (Birds of Prey)
- John Steele (Secret Avengers)
- the Absence (Batman and Robin)
- Oberon Sexton (Batman and Robin)
- Skinner Sweet (American Vampire, Vertigo)
- Sir Isaac Newton (S.H.I.E.L.D.)
- Shakespeare (Kill Shakespeare)
Voting is now on so please get out the vote! To vote for Shakespeare as the Best New Villain simply email Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him where to place the Bard!
