@@@ 13th ANNUAL @$$IE AWARDS! @@@

Welcome, all, to the 13th Annual AICN COMICS @$$IE AWARDS, where comics best and brightest are recognized for stellar (and sometimes not so stellar) performances in comic bookdom. I’m Mark L. Miller aka Ambush Bug, editor for AICN COMICS / AICN HORROR.

Usually, I add the In Memoriam section at the end of the Wednesday @$$ies column, but I feel that this year, it would be better if we just reserve a column on its own for those who have passed in the comics industry over the last year. Prof. Challenger has been a reviewer for AICN COMICS for ages and he always goes out of his way to make this piece one of the most heart-breaking and most honorable tributes of the @$$ies week. You can follow the Prof. and all of his creative endeavors at or follow him on Facebook @artistkeith and Instagram & Twitter @profchallenger.

So below we honor the real heroes of comics who have fallen in 2016…take it away, Prof.
