The Final Hours Count Down For Isotope Award Submissions
It's the frantic final hours to submit your mini-comic for consideration in the 2006 Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics and the last minute minis are pouring in! Those overworked Isotope mail carriers of all varieties have been showing up with armloads of packages from across the globe for the past few days, and as much as we feel sorry for them for the extra work we're putting them through... we love seeing so many great minis submitted this year!
It's no hyperbole that we're pumped up to be checking out what you people are sending in. It's great to see new work from people whose stuff knocked us out last year, and absolutely thrilling to see so many new folks entering the competition this year. And the quality? 2006 can be considered nothing short of the year of amazing looking and reading mini-comics! Kirsten, our special projects director whose dedication to this award each year makes it possible, was expressing just this weekend how difficult a job our judges will be having picking a winner. These are some truly beautiful books we're seeing, people.
Of course, we'll still be taking submissions up until midnight this Wednesday March 15th so you still have some time to get those books in! From 11am until 9pm the Isotope will be open and available for anyone making those last-minute submissions, and from there we will continue taking submissions until the witching hour at Jade Bar mere blocks down the street.
We're an easy group to pick out of a crowd, but for handy reference here's who to look for:
As always, there can only be one champion each year and this year the competition is definitely going to be tight. So thanks to those who have submitted this year for making our judges jobs hard!
... and yes Mister Maher, California does indeed look like it's going to have an excellent showing this year!
