AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE Nominated for 4 SICBA Awards!

On Friday, the official shortlist of nominees for Glasgow’s SICBA awards was announced, and I’m hugely excited to report that And Then Emily Was Gone – my upcoming project with artist Iain Laurie and letterer Colin Bell that’s set to debut at July’s Glasgow Comic Con – has swept the board, earning a nomination in every category.  Here is the shortlist in full:

It’s an honour just to be nominated, and I’m in some prestigious company here.  But who I’m really rooting for is the immensely talented Iain Laurie in his categories, as he’s a fantastic artist hugely deserving of every bit of recognition he gets.

You can check out And Then Emily Was Gone and all the other nominated comics at Plan B Books in Parnie Street, Glasgow now, where they have a little SICBA viewing area set up.  But you’ll only be able to vote on Saturday 13th July at Glasgow Comic Con, in the CCA on Sauchiehall Street.  So buy your tickets, come along for a great comic-filled weekend, and VOTE!  You don’t have to vote for me… but you DO have to buy my comics!  BWAHAHAHAHA!
