It's quite an honor, almost a difficult one to acknowledge given my modest nature. Thanks, and congratulations to all winners and nominees.
These past couple of years have been the most rewarding for me. You all were my primary social network during the pandemic, and have been inspirational in reinvigorating my interest in comics and encouraging my explorations of things like Hourman, Marvel Westerns, and jungle comics. I keep recalling a prophecy of doom made years ago, that despite this forum's generally genial, respectful, and positive tone, it would ultimately devolve into an unpleasant and bickering community. We've had conflicts now and then, and hurt feelings, but we're still maintaining some of the highest standards of online interaction that I've seen in any social media. Long may it remain so!
