Howard Tayler nominated for Hugo Award

Howard Tayler, creator of the webcomic Schlock Mercenary, has been nominated for two Hugo Awards one for “Best Graphic Story” and “Best Related Work”. This is his fourth nomination for Best Graphic Story and second time for Best Related Work for his work on the Writing Excuses podcast.

From his blog:

The “Best Graphic Story” ballot is intense this year. Bill Willingham (Fables) is there again for a fourth year with me, and without Studio Foglio on the ballot I am no longer shielded from the crushing power of his multiple-Eisner-winning team of graphic storytellers. Not that the other nominees are any less worthy of delivering a crush. I’m super-pleased to see Ursula Vernon’s Digger nominated, because that means it’s possible for me to lose while Webcomics win.

The Hugo Awards have been given for excellence in the field of science fiction and fantasy since 1955.
