Ignatz Nominees FINALLY Announced

Like the headline says, the Ignatz awards–the annual comics industry awards presented every year at SPX–have been announced, just a week or so before the event itself. Here’s a list:

2005 Ignatz Awards

I’m glad to see that Roger Langridge and Josh Cotter are finally getting some recognition. If you don’t own the Fred the Clown collection (by Langridge) or Skyscrapers of the Midwest #2 yet, you should go out and buy them immediately.

I’m surprised by how few folks chose to debut books this year. As I’m debuting a solo mini-comic and am also included in a mini-comics anthology, I’ve got two nominations in the “Outstanding Debut” category. I’m guessing “True Porn” vol II will win…’cause it’s got humping and stuff in it.
