I am partly responsible for Bautista's placing, Anonymous. I'm glad several others also thought him worthy. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY was one my faves this year, but it seems I'm in a minority there.

Obviously I meant a minority in terms of Skandie voters. GUARDIANS is much beloved by normal people.
