Femme Noir Nominated!

Joe Staton and I were shocked and honored to discover our own names – and that of our Femme Noir funnybook – among the nominees for the 2009 Spinetingler Awards, being given out by Spinetingler Magazine. These are awards given out for the best in crime fiction. Here we are, in the "Graphic Novel" category:
Graphic Novel:
• 100 Bullets, by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso
• Criminal, by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips
• Femme Noir, by Christopher Mills and Joe Staton
• Hawaiian Dick, by B. Clay Moore and Steven Griffin
• Incognegro, by Mat Johnson and Warren Pleece
• Scalped, by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera
As Spinetingler editor Sandra Ruttan explains, “Winners in each category will be determined by public vote. Voting will be open until April 25, 2009. Please follow this link to cast your vote in any or all of the categories, to see the covers nominated, and to follow the links to the short stories.” The victors will be announced on April 30.

Considering the competition, we don't have a shot in hell, but still, as they say, "it's an honor just to be nominated."

On the other hand, it'd be nice to win, or at least get some votes.

What are you waiting for? Go vote. Now!

Oh, I dunno.

I think you guys have a shot. I already know lots of guys who've voted for FEMME NOIR.

Including me.
