LOL @ "Kick Ass" by Mike Miller and John Romita Jr.
They made the "Kick Ass" comic into a manga?

Slight mistake you made: "Area 9" is actually "District 9", as in the movie about aliens in South Africa from a couple years ago. That's usually the category where a lot of "foreign" movies end up taking the award strangely enough...well in the early days.
