Goodreads Nomination and Some N

choice-logo-large-3b6c5b1100fce5aef9d6da8bc8b34bbb I’m THRILLED to announce that The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage has been nominated for the Goodreads Choice Graphic Novel category. I’m in amongst some of the most distinguished, fabulous, and huge names in comics so this is a truly extraordinary moment for me and this little strange semi-existent comic. Lovelace & Babbage has the smallest, or should I say the most EXCLUSIVE, readership (going by the number of ratings) of any of the books, which makes the nomination all the more en-chuffing. Goodreads Choice is a public vote so please head over and vote for The Thrilling Adventures, maybe we can make it into the finals!

If you’re in the same timeframe as me you are starting to be inundated by snowflake-encrusted mailers and thick catalogues of incredibly specialised baking implements. So it’s a good time to imagine what a perfect holiday gift The Thrilling Adventures would be for the particularly noble, intellectual, and discerning people on your gift list… Further, think of the dazzled joy in the eyes of your loved ones when they unveil an incredibly thoughtful Lovelace-and-Babbage gift- three new designs available as shirts, mugs, and whatnots at the 2dgoggles Zazzle Shop

    Well, it was a hard choice between you and Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona, but hey you asked first… Good luck!

    I voted for you, but your competition includes the latest Scott McCloud, a Kate Beaton collection and the first Lumberjanes collection, so good luck with that.

    That’s some stiff competition. Congratulations!
