100 Comics Positives For 2013: Michael DeForge Takes Home Three Bricks At The Ignatz Awards
There were a lot of great awards moments in 2014 in terms of who won what and how but one that stands out a bit was Michael DeForge picking up three Ignatzes. Awards like the Ignatzes tend not to stick with the same people year in year out -- it tends to be one of those awards where someone wins another award at some point and you think it might be their first and then you found out they won an Ignatz six years earlier. So winning a bunch at once a few years along in your career means something. The first of DeForge's books with Drawn and Quarterly is out with reviewers now, and he should continue his publishing onslaught for years to come. Let's hope so, anyway.
