More on Doug Wright Awards

imageA few extra notes on last weekend's Doug Wright Awards. Apparently, Drawn and Quarterly has expressed interest in publishing a major retrospective of Wright's work. In addition, despite my seeing differences in this news photo between the awards given '05 winners Bryan Lee O'Malley and Seth, I've been told the awards look exactly the same. I thought I saw a bit of a raised platform and differences at the bottom of the trophy, but I'm told that it's just an optical illusion caused by O'Malley holding his backwards. Forgive me; I am dumb.

As if to rub it in, Sean T. Collins writes in to point out a Gary Groth editorial for his Comics Journal more recent than 2000's "Time of the Toad" piece now being debated here and here.
