Soooo excited right now, I'm vibrating. A friend in the comics industry (what, you didn't know I was a humongous fanboy?) emailed me information to pass on to big bro. Seems the Eisner Awards may be opening up a Web Comic category this year, if the submissions are adequate.
Can you imagine if Moms Cancer won an Eisner? I could faint right now. I mean, not only would it be a dream come true for big bro (and me by vicarious living) but it would bring so much deserved attention to the comic. And how cool to go back to Comicon as a nominee!
It's great that the comic is going to be serialized in a San Diego paper and that so many people view it online, but the fam would really love to see it published by someone big enough to get it out there. Would loooove to see a copy of it in every doctor's office.
I have half a mind to post the entrant lady's email here and ask you all to tell her why it's a worthy entry, but I'm a little worried a deluge might backfire. I'll wait until big bro tells me what to do.
