The Harvey Awards, which have moved to Baltimore Comic-con for this years award ceremony, is now accepting nominations via a ballot that can be downloaded from their webpage. This year there is a new category, "Best Online Comics Work".
For the first time in several years, you'll note a new category on this year's ballot. In following with the results of a recent Referendum which appeared on an earlier Harvey ballot, you'll see the first-time inclusion of Best Online Comics Work. During the past year, we've had several discussions with professionals regarding the growing importance and diversity of online work. Any comments you'd like to make concerning any future revision/expansion to this category would be appreciated.

A cartoonist in Australia has used his special powers to fight crime. After confronting a burglar who stole his grandson's bike, Bill "WEG" Green drew a caricature of the man for police that had the alleged culprit in custody within 30 minutes.

After a busy news day today we don't want you to forget that week 2 of the January issue is up - here's a rundown of the new articles.
Also, just a note that I've reviewed all of the webcomics/creators suggested for the library to date. Keep 'em coming!
One of the cool features of the library (for me at least) is that the entries can link to relevant interviews and reviews. So if you click on the entry for Nine Planets Without Intelligent Life in the Library for the first time later this year you'll see a link there to Alexander Danner's review. Anyone can suggest a related link for a library entry - just go to the entry and click on the "suggest" link (it's towards the bottom of the entry).
