11/30/04 ~ Congratulations Craig Thompson!

From the Top Shelf newsletter

Top Shelf would like to congratulate Craig Thompson for doing something that's never been done in the history of comics: Sweep the Eisner, Harvey, and Ignatz Awards in a single category -- and he did it twice! BLANKETS not only swept the awards in the "Best Original Graphic Novel" category, but Craig took home all three "Best Cartoonist/Outstanding Artist" awards as well. This is a rare feat indeed! If you haven't read BLANKETS yet, you really need to see what all the fuss is about. You're in for a real treat.
