Croatian comics portal Stripovi launches Best of 2010 vote

The Eagle Awards aren’t the only people seeking comic fans votes this month: the fantastic-looking Croatian comics portal www.stripovi.com has just announced its annual poll for the best comics published in the past year.

Unlike other comic awards, stripovi have decided to keep things simple, limiting the voting to the best European comic strip album and best volumes, which include titles such as Blueberry – arguing that an excessive number of categories would be counterproductive and discouraging to visitors.

Selection is done by filling out a simple form on the Stripovi website http://www.stripovi.com/oscar/2010.

Voting ends on 1st March 2011, so brush up on your Croatian and take a look! (Or, for the faint-hearted like me, use Google Translate to see the nominated books list) .
