The writers of Ain’t It Cool News Comics honored Archaia this past week with several awards, including:

BEST PUBLISHER – Archaia

They are also kicking ass with books geared toward a younger audience with FRAGGLE ROCK, THE DARK CRYSTAL, and even MOUSE GUARD.”

“Lee’s technique elevates comic book art to a whole new level and the final project is something I have never seen before.”

BEST ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL – Return of the Dapper Men
“Everyone loves a good fairytale, and boy does this qualify. Writer Jim McCann (HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD) and Janet K. Lee (EMMA) team to bring us a fantasy that’s both modern and classic in its sensibilities. Do yourself a favor, and pick this book up; the comic industry needs more original ideas like this!”

BEST GRAPHIC NOVEL – Days Missing Vol. 1 Hardcover
“Take one God-like humanoid that has worked the earth for millennia collapsing monumental days in our collected evolution until we are ready…and then saddle this man with a human conscience.
