The documentary web series, which launched last March, allowed comic book fans to get up-close and personal with the Marvel Comics event “Avengers VS X-Men,” giving them an unprecendented look behind-the-scenes. Featuring “AvX” creators such as Brian Michael Bendis and Matt Fraction and Marvel staff like Axel Alonso and Nick Lowe, “AvX” brought viewers inside story meetings, into the houses of creators, and on the convention floor.
The Webbys, now in their 17th year, honors the cream of the online crop; past Webby winners include Twitter, Google, eBay, Pinterest, Skype, Fab.com, Instagram, BBC News, CNN, The Guardian, The New York Times, Aol, Tumblr, Wikipedia, ESPN, Funny or Die, Comedy Central, PBS, The Huffington Post, the Sundance Channel, and The Onion.
