Richard Woods says:

“To win any competition is pleasing, to be chosen from such a field of obvious talent is doubly so. That the panel includes the writer of Novel Graphics * and a journalist whose review of A Taste of Chlorine led me to buy it just adds to the nice warm feeling.

“My son is starting what I hope will be a long and satisfying journey with comics; he likes Asterix and Tintin and has just discovered several boxes of musty 2000 ADs. He likes the dark Judges: Death, Fire, Mortis and Fear, my favourite judges are more human.”

* Paul Gravett’s former column in Comics International.
