Interesantes nominaciones, aunque nunca olvidaré lo que se dice de Moore y su premio Hugo, que lo usa clavado al revés, como bebedero para los pájaros jaja

Un saludo.

Hay montones de piezas muy interesantes, ahí mismo tenemos la quinta entrega de "Canción de Hielo y Fuego", ¡a ver si esta vez se lo lleva Martin! Me alegro de que esté la cuarta entrega de "The Unwritten" y el quince de "Fábulas", son dos series muy merecidas.

Que cachondo el Moore con lo de los pájaros. xD
