Today (assuming I write this post quickly enough, Greenwich Mean Time) is the one-year anniversary of the publication of The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage. So it is extra-gobsmackingly amazing to be able to announce that is has been nominated for two Eisner Awards: Best New Graphic Album and Best Writer/Artist.
It’s fairly obvious that much of the way the comic is drawn is a
shameless rip-off adoring tribute to the work of Will Eisner; I’m pretty much out of words to express how honoured, delighted, and astonished I am by this. This is a fairly good result for an imaginary comic I wasn’t really drawing… I feel like I threw myself at the ground and missed and am now soaring through the air.
My latest Giant Monster work can be seen in cinemas by the way, if you were wondering why the silence was so pervasive on this here website it’s partly on account of that was a heck of a lot of work!
