Zombie BoyÂ received a special mention in the September/October 2016 newsletter of the National Cartoonists Society magazine, The Cartoonist, courtesy of Texas Chapter chair, Hector Cantu (Baldo).Â Hector spoke of my Harvey Award nomination, andÂ it was an honorÂ to have my first official recognition as a member of the Texas chapter of the NCS. Thanks, Hector!
Bret Juliano, the Godfather behind the brilliant comic,Â Dust Bunny Mafia, sent me this delightful Christmas Card featuring the seemingly invisible mob boss, Leo. Dust Bunny Mafia is an engagingÂ tip of the fedora to the Underworld, full of some of the worstÂ criminals who’ve ever skittered around. Bret’s characters and settings just scream for a feature film! Thanks so much, Bret and Happy Holidays to you!
I’m very happyÂ to announce that Zombie Boy ComicsÂ has been honored with a “Best Webcomic of 2016”Â award from the Root Beer Party! ManyÂ thanks to all of you talented creators and friends who voted for me! To read more about it, click here.
Hey folks! As of August 2, 2016 Zombie Boy Comics celebrates 6 years online! Wow, it seems like only yesterday (ok, no it seems like six years) that I started producingÂ a comic strip featuringÂ Zombie Boy. You can read thatÂ very first strip here. Making this strip over the yearsÂ has beenÂ lot of fun, I’ve improved my drawing and writing skills, andÂ I’ve met so many super people and wonderful creators who I now consider very good friends! Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me over these last six years and to you new readers who are just discovering the unlife of America’s Favorite Undead Adolescent! I appreciate your readership, and I’ll continue toÂ try to create something that you want to keep coming back to read.
And if that weren’t enough, next year Zombie Boy will celebrate his 30th year as aÂ character!Â Can you imagine that, because I never could!
Well, the 2016 Harvey Awards have come and gone, and let me tell you it was an unforgettable experience! Sitting in that big room,Â rubbing elbows with someÂ of the big names in the biz, I had a slight feeling of unreality. Although I didn’t win for “Best Online Comics Work” this year, it is an event that I will never forget in my lifetime. It’s a blessing that I was able to participate at all, and I’ve been told that it is a HerculeanÂ task to even become nominated! It gave me a sense of pride to know that I was the one dark horse in the room, lol.
I want to thank each and every one of you comic pros who nominated and voted for me. Without your help, my nomination and participationÂ in this year’s Harvey Awards would not have been possible. Thanks so much all of you!
