Thanks, Alan.

I’d like to extend hearty congratulations to everybody on the list, and especially to Phil and Kaja Foglio, whose webcomic “Girl Genius” was also nominated last year, and walked away with the award.

Wow, Fantastic!! Congrats to you, Howard Tayler! And to the Foglios. What wonderful company to be in for such a great thing.

I’m going to be rooting for you, though, Howard. Your story is the only nominee with a SINGLE name after it. I’m just so pleased for you.

Congrats Howard! I’m envious of your steady work ethic and the discipline that’s required to write, draw, color and ink all the time. As a friend on FB and Twitter, I know how rigorous doing everything can be and wish I wasn’t so lazy compared to you. Good luck!
