Kathryn Immonen

2009 Friends of Lulu Award Nominees Announced

A whole bunch of talented comics creators nominated for this year's Friends of Lulu awards

Look at these lists!  Just looking at those with whom I'm familiar with the work: New Talent includes Kate Beaton, Hark, A Vagrant; Kathryn Immonen, Hellcat; and Tracy White, Traced; and Lulu of The Year includes Shaenon K. Garrity, Skin Horse; Lynda Barry, What It Is; Danielle Corsetto, Girls With Slingshots; and Jessica Abel, Life Sucks

Also a special woohoo for Eleanor Davis' nomination for Stinky in the Kids comics category.  Davis is currently the favorite author of the X girls right now for Stinky and The Secret Science Alliance.

The Pulse also features comics writer Warren Ellis' column The Ministry wherein Ellis often dives into webcomics.  I'm not sure I've been consistent in linking to it which is too bad because it's been good reading. So here you go:
