I have some great news! The nominees to the 2009 Harvey Awards have been announced. My buddy, John Gallagher and his comic, BUZZBOY: SIDEKICKS RULE, have been nominated for six awards. The categories include Best Writer, Best Cartoonist, Best Inker, Best Letterer, Best Cover Artist, and Special Award for Humor in Comics.

Here’s what John Gallagher had to say:

Please let me say personally, this is a great honor, and quite humbling, to be nominated in the same categories as some really, really, talented creators-- people whom I deem as far superior as writers, cartoonists, etc. I am positive that many across the internet will offer up a collective "What Th--?" about us getting the recognition we are getting, and I join them in that-- but I really do appreciate those that may have thrown their support our way.

Congratulations go out to Rich Faber (Best Inker), Thom Zahler (Best Letterer), Frank Cho (Best Cover Artist), and John Gallagher (Best Writer, Best Cartoonist, Special Award for Humor in Comics).
