All Chris, All The Time?

Where to start, where to start?

  • How about with congratulations, as Karl Kerschl’s The Abominable Charles Christophertook the Joe Shuster Award (for outstanding achievement in cartooning by Canadians) in the Webcomics/Bandes Dessinées Web category. Other Shuster winners of interest to our little community include the Harry Kremer Award for Outstanding Canadian Comic Book Retailer/Le Prix Harry Kremer pour Détaillant Exceptionnel Canadien de Bandes Dessinées, recognizing The Beguiling (managed by Christopher Butcher, who also runs the very webcomics-friendly TCAF) and the Artist/Dessinateur award to Stuart Immonen (creator, with his wife Kathryn, of the astonishingly good Moving Pictures). Congratulations to all the winners, the nominees, and to their parents, who worked so hard on the costumes.
  • As noted last week, Christopher Baldwin’s Little Dee starts its re-run with commentary today. Not noted last week: Christopher Baldwin’s Bruno also starts its re-run with commentary today; Bruno ran from 1996 to 2007 and had a proverbial cast of thousands, so if nothing else the modern ability to tag strips will make it much, much easier to follow the comings and goings of occasionally-appearing characters. According to Baldwin, Bruno originals will even be made available for purchase, and hopefully this return of the strip will drive a few more people to check out the ten-book collection.
  • Third Christopher (and second Canadian Christopher) of the day: Christopher Bird writes on comics and other things at Mighty God King (seriously, check out his series on Rex The Motherfucking Wonder Dog), and today he appears to have put his comics punditry where his mouth is: Part One, Page One of what may be titled Al’Rashad, but about which there is presently little information. Given the vast treasure trove of comics ideas that Bird has shared, I’m ready for Part One, Page Two.
  • I’m calling it: Kris Straub just coined the two most disturbingly funny lines in webcomics of 2010; everybody else, accept runner-up status next to Sauce is go, sir and Daddy’s home, sir.
