I am back from SPX where my comic book Gold Star won the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Story.
It is very strange to stand on stage, accepting an award for a story about a character accepting an award. And even stranger to affix a gold sticker to a book with that title.
Big thanks to Box Brown and everything he does for Retrofit Comics. I wouldn’t have written this story had he not asked me to be a part of Retrofit.
Thanks also to everyone who voted, and a tip of my hat to my fellow nominees, Dan Zettwoch, Lilli Carré, Tom Hart, and Joanna Hellgren.
