Injury nominated for Ignatz


Our little comic has been nominated for "Best Series" in the Ignatz Award battle. The award will be voted on by attendees to the SPX comics show, so it's unfortunate none of our gang will be there to glad hand, kiss babies, hand out trinkets, etc. But you know - crowds tend to settle for mediocrity, so I think we've got a fair shot. For anyone planning on attending SPX, a preview of our book can be found here.

This year's ballot actually has some great nominees. My old pal Warren Craghead is up for Outstanding Artist for How To Be Everywhere. Also up for three awards is another artist I'm a big fan of: Michel Rabagliatti. Nice to see he's getting the recognition. Not to mention Gabrielle Bell, Onsmith, David King, Trevor Alixopulos and Greg Means - very cool to see such a great group.

Comics Panel at Mizzou this Sunday


Mardou and I are gonna be up in Columbia, Mo. this Sunday (Sept 14th at 2pm) sitting on a panel about "comic artists in the digital age." This is an event sponsored by Mizzou's Comic Art Collection. It's part of the celebration they're doing for Alley Oop's 75th anniversary. Other artists on the panel include Matt Kindt and Jeff Zwirek, and Frank Stack (I think). Should be fun. I just hope they don't quiz me on "Alley Oop" cause I know virtually nothing about him.
More info and other events at the official site.
