  2. David Hackett says:

    Great to see the whole Captain Canuck team get honoured like that. Fond childhood memories there, hazy as they are.

  3. Congratulations to all of the winners!

    As usual, in the course of the work that we do behind-the-scenes we get to look at and discuss some amazing comics and graphic novels.

    One of the things that became evident in the course of the jury deliberations is just how much amazing work is coming from the bande dessinée creators and publishers based in Quebec and the self-publishers and webcomics creators across Canada. We are definitely in the middle of a creative renaissance.

    That renaissance was particularly evident in the categories of Outstanding Cartoonist and
    Outstanding Webcomics Creator / Creative Team. Cartoonists like Seth, Darwyn Cooke, Michel Rabagliati, Bryan Lee O’Malley and Jeff Lemire are producing some of the best comics in the world. Ditto for webcomics creators like Karl Kerschl, Kate Beaton, Rene Engstrom and Steve Wolfhard. Do yourself a favour (with an extra u because they are Canadian) and check them out if you haven’t already!

    Kevin, I echo that, eh?

  5. Beyonce, who headlined Glastonbury on Sunday evening, was chatted about on social network internet websites a good deal more than various other musician at the festival this particular time around, according to Brandwatch
