And it turns out Alex Cormack and I won second prize for our story, “Essex County Literary Wax Museum & Menagerie.” That story also opens the collection on a “literary” note.
The first-prize winner was writer-artist Robert Sergel for a two-page story called “Control.”
Third prize went to Lindsay Moore and Laurel Leake for “Amazons vs. Valkyries,” a wordless comic about sports and mythology which you can also read here.
And speaking of Amazons, I came away from the book’s launch party with a Wonder Woman figurine. (There were door prizes.) Alas, I didn’t get to see the Paige M. Gutenberg print-on-demand machine actually make a copy of the book.
