Wonderful news!...

My friend Brian's web comic, "Mom's Cancer", has been nominated for an Eisner Award in the brand-new category of "Best Digital Comic"!

These awards, voted on by comics professionals in a number of areas, are a pinnacle of recognition for a comic artist. They are, of course, named in honour of a recognized master of comic art, the late and much-missed Will Eisner. You can read about them here.

Most excitingly, "Mom's Cancer", which had been taken offline due to its pending publication in book format, is temporarily available again online because of its nomination. If you missed reading it before, don't miss your chance now and end up waiting until the book comes out in February of next year (even though you'll want to own a copy anyway - the publisher is very committed to the project, and early reports suggest the format and quality promises to be outstanding).

Congratulations to Mom, to Kid Sis and Nurse Sis, who stared cancer in the eye and made it back down; and especially to Brian who was part of the team that did it and who told their story in such a moving and compelling way.

Thanks, Ronnie. I'm here almost every day, too.

Re: your entry above, I can't figure out what a "Muhammed-on-Fire" is *supposed* to be. Of course, back in the day I think they just called that a "hunka hunka burnin' love."

I'm sure you weren't the only one who couldn't figure out "MUHAMMED-ON-FIRE", Brian, so I added a footnote.

But your "hunka hunka burnin' love" adds a delicious mental image to the original cockup, to be sure :)
