No, Bandette, you are wrong. The news is not fearsome. It is, instead, wonderful.

I’m proud to announce that Bandette has been nominated for three Eisner awards. The award categories are…

Best Continuing Series: Bandette

Best Digital/Webcomic: Bandette

Best Painter/Multimedia Artist: Colleen Coover / Bandette

Colleen and I could not be happier. Thanks so much to Chris and Allison at Monkeybrain, and to everyone at ComiXology, and to Brendan Wright and the rest of the fine folks at Dark Horse Comics. And, of course, to everyone who reads and enjoys the adventures of our charming thief, Bandette.

And, in addition, I’m super pleased that another of my projects received an Eisner nomination!

I Was The Cat

I Was The Cat, by me and Benjamin Dewey, was nominated for Best Publication For Kids (ages 8-12). It’s a real honor for Ben and I to be nominated. We consider the book to be for everyone, no matter what age, and it’s certainly a complex book full of world history and drama and cats. Some of which die. Man… one gets stabbed with a bayonet. Ben drew the hell out of that.

I’d love to thank editors Jill Beaton and Robin Herrera, as well as the whole cast of the fine folks at Oni, for helping us get this book out there.

And, HUGE thanks to all the readers and retailers and everyone in the whole dang industry, no matter what side of the table you’re on. It’s a great time for comics, and I think this must have been one of THE hardest years to come up with the nominations, so I’m even more humbled that my books received four nominations. Thank you, everyone!
