Don't forget to vote in the Harveys! Ballots due Aug. 15.
UPDATE: The email address to return ballots to is a dreaded SBCglobal address that no one at Fantagraphics can email to. I guess no Harvey Awards for us this year!

Happy new year, faithful floggers. I begin the new year with yet another "Best Of" list. You've no doubt had enough of them, these "Top Tens" and "Must Have" lists and checklists from hither and yon. I promise to not inundate you with the vast majority of such digital miscellany, but to our fellow cartoon publishers, I have but one question for you: How many of your books made the list of The Top Cryptozoology Books of 2007? Yeah, that's right, I'm talkin' to you. What's that? I can't hear you. Huh? Yeah, that's what I thought. You can shut up now.
More year-end accolades: New York Magazine has named Paul Hornschemeier's The Three Paradoxes one of its five Best Comics of 2007. Paul is the only American creator on the list (Japan, Israel and Australia are also represented), so hey, I guess that unofficially makes The Three Paradoxes the best American comic of the year! Congratulations, Paul!
Meanwhile, The Complete Peanuts 1963-64 makes it onto Time's Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2007 list. I don't know if the writer is the first to compare Snoopy's doghouse to the TARDIS, but if so, nicely done. We're honored to continue collecting Schulz's work.
