I keep waiting for the year when Argyle Sweater and Brevity are nominated for the Newspaper Panel division.

Argyle Sweater is the best. I buy the paper everyday to just read the comic. Such an underrated strip.

Whatever, it’s just an honor not to be nominated.

Hey! Where’s the Webcomic category?
(Sorry, just wanted to be the first one to start the argument this year.)

When true mediocrity, by anyone’s definition, like Tundra and Pop Culture ShockTherapy and Dustin get nominations, these awards have completely lost their merit and value. Does anyone really care anymore? Time for a new cartoonists’ society, that honors both excellence in print and web comics, not just cartoons that old guys like.

Awesome. I thought I would never amount to anything but I can now say I am associated with true mediocrity. Congratulations to Chad and all the nominees.

The NCS should be ashamed of themselves for nominating Dustin after all the allegations made against their syndicate for the way they got it into newspapers. They set the business back years by giving it away.

It is kind of funny how worked up we get about something so completely subjective. As if winning “best whatever” actually makes it the best. I thought The Social Network was the best picture of the year, but I guess I was wrong.

I suspect a lot of the awards could be renamed “Best relationship with someone on the board of directors”.
