From Washington City Paper's 2008 Best of DC (April 18, 2008)...
Best Cartoonist - Richard Thompson!
...and the crowd goes wild!
Mark Athitakis has a nice writeup of Richard's virtues. The WCP also selected this site as...
Best (Comic) Art Blogger - ComicsDC
Thank you very much! That's very kind, especially after I beat up on the WCP so much this past year about their comics losses. I now feel a very teensy bit guilty. Teensy though.
Both of these were spotted by my friend and houseguest Nick "The System of Comics" Nguyen.
