HAPPY BIRTHDAY UNCLE STAPLE!!! Gator by Evan Cagle back in 2006. More of Evan’s work at hypermirage.blogspot.com
So, yeah, HOLY SHIT, we won BEST NEW SERIES at the Eisner Awards Friday night. The Eisner committee had to engrave the words “SEX CRIMINALS” on two of their trophies. I have hidden it in my home for when they realize what they’ve done and come to take it away from me.
It was a fantastic, nerve-wracking night, and jeez louise ain’t Matt Fraction the best? If it weren’t for him and his brilliant brain I’d be doodling dicks on cocktail napkins for spare change. I love that guy and can’t stress enough how great it’s been to work on this with him. He’s a great collaborator and a great friend and NO, YOU have something in your eye.
Oh, and issue seven is at the printers, printing away. No ads, all story and giant letters column. COMICS WOOOO
STAPLE! friend Chip Zdarsky wins Eisner! Congrats buddy!

It’s hard to know when to let something go. Or when to keep pushing through.
