Joe Gordon over at the Forbidden Planet International blog has a piece up about the Scottish Independent Comic Book Alliance Awards. This in awards program in its fourth year. This year's program -- announced during the Glasgow Comic-Con -- featured a clean sweep for Dungeon Fun, winning all four sponsored categories. Gordon argues that this is significant for that market embracing an all-ages comic like that one.

The special award for Outstanding Contribution To Comics went to John Wagner, the vote of many a smart person I know for greatest working comics writer and a considerable comics-maker by any measure.
