It happened a little over month ago, but I still have a smile on my face… At the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, POPGUN 3 won the Eisner Award for Best Anthology.
I said in my happily shocked acceptance speech that everyone who worked on the book basically won about 1/80th of an Eisner — but it was more like 1/95th! Holy smokes.
Below are the fine folks I was too tongue tied and time constrained to thank / congratulate by name back on July 23rd…
