It was up to Jonathan Ross to end the evening once again. Wossy wowed the audience while giving away the final three awards of the night: Best Graphic Album—Reprint, Best Reality Based Work, and Best Graphic Album—New. We're guessing those are the awards for Jillian and Mariko Tamaki and their Best Graphic Album—New work, This One Summer. Photo by Jody Cortes © 2015 SDCC

Finally, it was a huge evening for the fan-favorite all-ages comic Lumberjanes, which won two awards: Best New Series and Best Publication for Teens (ages 13–17). Shannon Watters and Noelle Stevenson were present to pick up the awards for themselves and their fellow co-creators Grace Ellis and Brooke A. Allen. The duo seem a little subdued in the first photo (above), and then ... well, we'll shut up and let you see what happens once Shannon and Noelle made their way to our photo area.
