That is so awesome! I'm so happy for Kurtis to receive this well-deserved recognition from the industry. Needless to say, I think the critics got it right this time :mrgreen:

Thanks everyone!

Man, it was a complete surprise, not going to lie. Jeff Lemire is a sort of Canadian darling in the comic industry so I was pretty caught off guard by the whole thing.

I'm a pretty big Lemire fan too, I think he's done some amazing work. That said, I think you definitely deserved to be the one to take the award this year!
