The guy, the thing and the place.

In Brazil, we have awards for comics as well. Our equivalent to the Eisner Awards is called HQ Mix, and last week they announced the nominees. We're running in three categories this year:

-best artist (F‡bio Moon and Gabriel B‡): We always sign everything together, so we probably will never compete against each other.

-best independent publication (Feliz Anivers‡rio, Meu Amigo): This is a comic book we self published last year and got a lot of attention, a lot of praise and is almost sold out by now. It's a great story about friendship and this is the one I think should really win in this category.

-best artist's blog (Os Loucos): This blog's Brazilian brother, the blog we write in portuguese to tell our brazilian fans what we think, what we're doing and how to do comic books (yes, we spill the goods in that one) is a strong nominee. And this is a recently created category, but I think it's a good one, because in Brazil the market is not big and it's of great help if you have a blog for people from all over the country to see what you're up to. We don't put stories on-line, but people get interested in our work just by reading what we have to say (write, actually), which is something I hope happens around here as well.

The ceremony will happen sometime in June, I think, and I'll let you know if my brother and I won anything.
