Well, okay, so we're proud of her!
Once again, this weekend, Danica won the Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics. Just to recap, this award is sponsored by The Isotope, a very cool comic book store in San Francisco. Danica flew West to receive her unstable molecule, at a ceremony timed with the Alternative Press Expo--and she has gotten a lot of great internet press:
Tom Spurgeon at The Comics Reporter and Heidi MacDonald The Beat have both made mention of Danica winning this award.
There's a thread on Warren Ellis' excellent the Engine about the Alternative Press Expo that mentions Danica in glowing terms:
Danica Novgorodoff's A Late Freeze took top honors at the APE Aftermath. The coolest moment of the ceremony was when she asked if she could try on James Sime's exquisite Dr. Strange cape. The place went wild. It was awesome.
And Danica is a delight to talk to about comics. She's clearly fighting the good fight.
And from the Editor at the inspiring Oni Press :
I got a chance to talk with Danica on Saturday, albiet way too briefly. Her mini is definitely a beautiful object with exquisite design. She's also a (the primary?) designer for First Second and was responsible for the breath-taking design on Gene Yang's book that I mentioned up thread. She's a classy, talented woman and one to watch to be sure.
