…I wrote this post about Comic Book Resources naming “Missing the Boat” one of the top 100 comics of 2009.

This week, CBR columnist Augie De Blieck, Jr. (who contributed the book’s entry on their top 100 list) went one step further and named “Missing the Boat” one of his top ten favorite comics of the year. You can check out his full list here. (The list starts about two-thirds of the way down the page.)

While checking that article out, I stumbled upon another article Augie wrote back in March 2009 about switching from comic buying to trade paperback/graphic novel buying. In the article, he wrote about book spoilers, and how “Missing the Boat” was still enjoyable even though the end of the book is given away in the title itself. You can check out that article here.

Man… I think I might owe Augie some money or something.

Thanks, Augie! I really appreciate your continued support, and am flattered by your love for the book. Now, can you do me a favor and write a quick letter to all of my ex-girlfriends and let ’em know what they’re missing out on?

Actually still friends with most of my ex-girlfriends,


Comic Book Resources just named “Missing the Boat” as one of the top 100 comics of last year!

The book came in at #68, right between Marvel Comics’ “Strange Tales” (#69) and Wildstorm’s “Mysterius the Unfathomable” (#67).

I’m afraid this small hardcover book at Shadowline got overlooked when it was released earlier this year. At first, it seems silly and over-the-top, but by the end develops into a touching, heartfelt, and often laugh-out-loud funny story of the two creatures who missed Noah’s Ark through their own laziness, thus dooming their species.
