The gentleman who appears in today's comic is the first of four new characters named after (and based on, appearance-wise) one of the WoB-book pledgers who purchased a role in the comic. The characters will be appearing gradually over time; the others will turn up eventually. Watch for them. This one's name will be revealed presently.

Good news, everyone: It Never Rains has been nominated for the Prix Aurora Award in the Graphic Novel category. The Auroras are handed out annually to works in the SF genre. Only people who are members of the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association can vote (annual membership is $10 CAD and gets you access to the Aurora voting package, which includes full electronic versions of most of the nominated works). I've won once before for my music and have been nominated for that again as well. West of Bathurst was nominated a couple of years ago but lost to the excellent Weregeek.

There are some other fun comics in my category, so check them out (none of the others are webcomics, but the authors likely have work online somewhere). Congratulations to all the other nominees.
