For the past ten years, the Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland Oregon issues awards to nominees chosen by a panel of judges, journalists, and retailers. You may have missed it or maybe you didn't, lets not take put words in your mouth, but on April 27 our friends at Dark Horse walked away with a dramatic four wins.
The delightful cartoonist/comic vanguard Jen Vaughn presented the awards via Twitter.
So. Who won? Who lost? Who hooked up with who at the after party? Well a lady never asks and a gentleman never tells, but we can give you a list of Darkhorse's wins.
Blacksad, as you all might know, is the dark, gritty comic that involves anthropomorphized animals noir-ing it up among themselves. A Silent Hell, other than being a badass noir title, is another installment in the series.
Best Publication Design - Cary Grazzini for Blacksad: A Silent Hell
The biggest strength of Blacksad is its amazing art, so it's not surprising that that's decimating the competition. There should be a cat pun here, come back to me.
