And why did Empire State win? Well, read what these folk had to say about it, earlier this year:

Empire State is highly recommended to those who like their sci-fi dark, pacey and woven tight by multiple threads of intrigue.”
– SciFiNow

“As captivating as a kaleidoscope… just feel it in all its weird glory.”
– Cory Doctorow, author of Makers and Little Brother

Empire State is an excellent, involving read, and it fully deserves to be the start of a new universe.”
Paul Cornell, Doctor Who scriptwriter, and author of London Falling, Wolverine and Demon Knights

“A daring, dreamlike, almost hallucinatory thriller, one that plays with the conventions of pulp fiction and superheroes like a cat with a ball of yarn.”
– Kurt Busiek, Eisner Award-winning writer of Astro City and Marvels
