Fantastic News!!!

I'll tell you about my trip later.

First, much more important news!

While I was out of touch, "Mom's Cancer" won the first ever Eisner Award presented in the new Digital Comic category!

It simply couldn't go to a more deserving comic, whether you judge by artistic merit or simply the fact that Mom's Cancer is a well-told, can't-stop-reading page-turner.

It'll be out in book format (via the astute people at Abrams books) in February 2006.

I simply could not be more pleased for Brian or for his family, who I've had the privilege of getting to know through this marvellous medium of the internet. What a gift he's given us, and what a joy to see it recognized.

Congratulations, Brian, Mom and family. You so deserve this.

Now, go to the website and see photos of the convention and Brian's acceptance speech.
