HARVEY AWARDS NOMINATIONS: SIX-GUN GORILLA
Jeez. That book. That weird, metafictional, supremely personal, absurdly titled little book about a heartbroken librarian and an ape with a gun. It just keeps on going.
We heard this week that - in one form or another - Six-Gun Gorilla pops up three times in the final ballot of the Harveys: the awards nominated and selected solely by professionals working in the comics industry. Notably:
1. Best New Series
2. Best Artist
3. Best newcomer
I’m not going to ask you to go vote for us (for Jeff, really) because that’s not remotely cool, but I am going to make a big song and dance about how abso-fucking-lutely delighted we are that our genre-busting headsploding weird-western efforts have gone down so well. It means more than you’ll ever know.
And, yes, obviously, I’m going to drop you a link to the final ballot - RIGHT HERE - with a request that if you’re an industry pro, or know of any who haven’t yet registered their ballot, do please make sure opinions are appropriately and earnestly directed.
And thanks. Most of all, thanks.
