4/30/06 ~ Oddly missing

I received a ballot for the Eisner Awards. Oh the power! I have a vote to determine the outcome.

For anyone else with a ballot, make sure to WRITE IN: Oddly Normal by Otis Frampton (Viper) for the category of Best Title for a Younger Audience. I realize a write-in would hardly have a chance, but Otis deserves the nomination. Ideally, the Eisners are to recognize "excellence for publications and creators in your field". Quality, not popularity. Oddly Normal is an amazing story that was sadly overlooked.

Don't get me wrong. This category has some great comics, but I wish it were even more competitive. There simply aren't enough younger audience books available.
