Bigfoot Won A Medal.

Honored Again

Bigfoot, Scout, and I are happy to announce Untold Tales of Bigfoot picked up a Bronze Medal in the 2017 Independent Publisher Book Awards in the category of Graphic Novel, Humor. In lieu of a ticker-tape parade, I’ll be emptying the bin of my document shredder onto my head in a private ceremony.

“Why didn’t you win the Gold Medal?” you might ask if you were, say, my mother, or some other well-meaning fan. “Well,” I suppose I’d have to respond, “You shoulda’ seen the other guy.” And it’s true. The graphic novel category was filled with great looking books and it’s an honor just to be considered.

“But didn’t you actually tie for the bronze, Vince?” you might press on, wondering why you wasted all that money sending me to college. And yes, two of us in the category won a bronze medal, so I guess you can blame me for any future bronze shortage. But I think we’re losing focus here. The entire point of this whole thing is…

I’m getting a medal. An actual medal! So if you happen to be in my local grocery store and find yourself thinking, is that guy in the dairy aisle wearing a giant, ostentatious medal around his neck? Yes, he is, and he’s buying the last of the blueberry yogurt.

3 Rivers Comic Con

Another place you might spot me wearing that medal is the 3 Rivers Comic Con, May 20th-21st. It’s just under a month away, so I thought I’d let you know in case you were going to be in town.

I’ll have books, prints, & more at 3 Rivers Comic Con, as well as this spiffy new UToB banner.

3 Rivers Comic Con is a small, local con, and I’ve never tabled there before. But judging from the guest list, it seems like a venue that really focuses on comics and creators (unlike some other local cons that seem to bank on booking ’70s sitcom stars).

A few of my Pittsburgh artist friends are going to be there, as well as some industry guests like Mark Waid, Scott McDaniel, Pat Oliffe, and others. Looking forward to seeing all of them, and you. -v

  1. I’m lining up with your mother, wish I’d been the judge :0) Congratulations, the Indies awards are bigtime, very respected!

    • Thanks, Anni. You know, I got up early this morning and put this post together because I remembered how much you enjoyed having something to read on your Wednesday mornings. : ) -v

      • This was almost as good as an episode—thanks!

  2. That's gre

    • I’m baffled by Phil’s comment, “That’s gre” Was he kidnapped midway through his comment? And what could he have been typing? My best guess is, “That’s greedy, Vince. You already won a Reuben for that thing. Give it a rest.” Mystery solved. -v

  3. Congrats! That’s awesome!

    • Hey, thanks! It was a pleasant surprise. I’ll post photos of the medal when it arrives. : ) -v

  4. A HUGE congratulations to you, Vince! You definitely deserved it, my friend. :O)

    • Hey, thanks, Joseph! Boy, you and I haven’t talked in a while. Hope everything’s good with you. -v
