I just checked out Matt's ojingogo which i had missed up til now. It is nice but far from finished (it has about 13 pages done). I wonder how you can compare works largely finished or well into an ongoing run with something that seems to be a mere beginning?

I don't know the answer to that really - it just seems like a question that needs to be discussed.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

I'm a bit disappointed that Oskarsson's Flick isn't up there. Athena, Copper, Jonny Crossbones and Mom's Cancer are all known to me and worthy of nominations, the other two I'll have to read up on.
