Last week, the National Cartoonist Society 2012 divisional awards for the Reubens were announced and incredulously, my little feature was named as one of the nominations for Best Online Comic - Short Form. It's truly a great honor to be nominated. The other nominations are the incredible Ten Cats by Graham Harrop and the fabulous Mac by the uber-talented Michael McPharland so my chances of winning are minuscule but I hope to be in Pittsburgh to see them collect the award. By a weird coincidence, all three of us hail from the British Isles, live in North America and are syndicated on GoComics! Michael also has homefield advantage being a Gotham resident.
