The awards for Best Publication for Teens, Best Writer, Best Painter, Best Cover Artist and Best Continuing Series all go to Monstress by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda.

Best New Series of 2018 goes to Black Bolt by Saladin Ahmed. Set in the Marvel Universe, Black Bolt wakes up in prison. To find out who imprisoned him and why, Black Bolt must fight to find answers.

Spinning by Tillie Walden won Best Reality-Based Work.

As she falls in love with her first girlfriend and takes more interest in the world outside skating, she realizes there are other ways to find her voice.
