Combing through my google alerts and I came across this extremely nice statement from our pals at Secret Acres for The Beat’s Person Of the Year thread:

Combing through my google alerts and I came across this extremely nice statement from our pals at Secret Acres for The Beat’s Person Of the Year thread:

From where we sit in the lunchroom, comics’ 2010 POY is Peggy Burns. This likely won’t register with the superhero crowd or the folks gazing at the Diamond Top 300, but take a look at the New York Times and you’ll see James Sturm and Lynda Barry and Dan Clowes all over it – including on their list of bestselling graphic novels, of which we’re sure the Big Two are very much aware. Speaking of Dan Clowes, D&Q not only picked him up in 2010, but also happened to publish a book by that Chris Ware guy. There’s no debate about which company is in pole position among literary comics publishers anymore, possibly even comics publishers, period…

Gosh, shucks! Thanks Barry and Leon, but I can’t take the credit with the NYT (or any press, really) and D+Q artists all I do is post the envelope! Though you forgot Vanessa, Kevin, Denys and Leanne, heh…. See you at Stumptown, boys!
