My favorite for the win is Phil and Kaja Foglio’s “Girl Genius” book. They’re good friends, and I love their writing and illustration style.

Congratulations are still in order, Howard. The recognition alone is good news. I’m pleased to see independents nominated alongside publishing houses.

Looks like a stacked field. I’d be honored just to be mentioned with everyone who was nominated. Don’t settle for that though, go for the win. Congrats Howard.
