Congratulations also to Gipi, whose gorgeous GARAGE BAND was nominated for Best US Edition of International Material.


*By a wonderful coincidence, on the day that LAIKA won the Eisner - July 25 - internet cult figure and most excellent musician Jonathan Coulton released a song about the very same dog. You can read about it and download it here, at Coulton's blog.

I first heard of garage band in Wizard magazine. I'll have to pick up a copy now.

Congrats, Nick!

Laika is one of my favs from the 01: catalogue.

Fantastic. Both of these are terrifically worthy and excellent. Great to see them recognized so.
