By the Hoary Hosts of Harvey!
Good lord. I appear to have scored a bunch of Harvey Award nominations. (What is the collective noun for award nominations, anyway? A "gaggle"? A "plethora"? Given that there will be more losers than winners, perhaps it should be a "disappointment".) Anyway, I'm up for Best Cartoonist (!), Best Original Graphic Publication for Younger Readers (for The Muppet Show Comic Book), and Special Award for Humor in Comics (as well as technically being included in the ACT-I-VATE nomination for Best Anthology).
I have a feeling that a lot of the goodwill I'm getting for the Muppet comics is because I'm fortunate enough to be standing on Jim Henson's enormous shoulders, but I'm grateful nonetheless. Thanks to everyone who put my name in the hat.
