see that outstanding sherlock holmes writing there in panel six? that's RIGHT.
The haps: Congratulations to the talented creators who got nominated for Eisner awards this year! Hope Larson got nominated for Gray Horses, which is a treat of a book. In the Best Digital Comic category we find Bee, in "Motel Art Improvement Service", Girl Genius, Phables, the Sam and Max comic, Shooting War, and Minus. All are deserving and excellent comics, and I'm pleased to say I'd read them all before except for Phables. Ryan "Minus" Armand did a guest comic for me way back when, so it's great to see him get this sort of recognition. Congratulations, everyone!
Also nominated is the truly stellar "Vampire Loves", a book I will recommend to you Without Hesitation. It is one of my favourite comics from the past year and maybe EVER. It is romantic and funny and great.
