Last year, the semi finals were all Bat and Lantern, with Batman and Robin going up against Green Lantern. This year, the twin best sellers meet head-to-head once more in the quarter finals.

While DC is no doubt dominating our other reader polls for the second year in a row, it's interesting to note that Marvel has a much stronger show of force in the second round of the ongoing tournament.

The upsets for the first round were Detective Comics knocking out Vertigo stalwart Fables, and Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four beating the higher-seeded S.H.I.E.L.D. by Jonathan Hickman. Tough break, Jonathan, and congratulations to Jonathan. Those two Cinderella hopefuls are up against each other in round 2.

Now it's up to you to vote again.

Remember, you don’t have to be a registered Newsarama reader to participate. EVERYONE can help choose by picking one choice in each of the below brackets. Again, there are four of them in Round 2, so keep going until you’ve voted in ALL four brackets. Voting for Round 2 will remain open for 1 week.

Newsarama Note: Full methodology for nomination is below the polls.

10 Newsarama contributors submitted their lists for their personal Top 20 in each of the five categories. The results were tabulated using a weighted system that awarded an escalating number points according to how high the nominee appeared on the list - 20th place was worth 1 point, 19th place 2 points ... up to 20 points for 1st place.

The final nominee lists are the top 16 nominees with the highest point totals in each category.

Each bracket is seeded according to point total, with the highest vote-getter in each bracket moving onto the next round.

There will be 4 total rounds for each category (the “Sinister 16”, "Extremis 8", “Fantastic Four” and Finals) eventually resulting in one overall “Favorite of 2010” for each group.

Who are your top artists of the year?
