TOUAMBie Award "Comic of the Year"
« on: December 02, 2009, 02:01:38 am »

This was an interesting year for Achewood. Some might consider it an off year for the strip, but in a year that only saw 106 strips produced there were some real gems.  To tell us about them and announce the winner will be the poster formerly known as Judy is a Dick Slap now going by the even more inexplicable moinker Drygioni.  Take it away Judy!

Ok, it looks like we've had our first glitch of the night.  Let's hope it won't be the last.  I don't have anything prepared to say in Judy's stead, so I'll just announce the winner.

It's the comic from 01/12/2009  http://achewood.com/index.php?date=01122009

I'm Accepting the award on behalf of Chris Onstad.

Brilliant time for the laptop to make a loud noise and wake my girlfriend causing a lot of questions to be asked. I thought I may have one of the later slots so forgot about it but obviously not.

Paul thanks for covering in my stead!

Here is the original presentation to jazz things up a bit.

It is with great pleasure I present the award for best Achewood strip of the year.

The fertile mind of Mr Onstad has produced many a momentary diversion whether read in the office, on the loo or on the road to the grave.

Indeed, whilst our community here is held together by *fuck knows what, think of three things to put here* a lot of things, it is a shared passion for Achewood that has drawn us to TOUAMB in the first place, and allowed us all a common interest on which to build our freakish interweb-relationships.

It is only right and proper that this wonderful comic is recognised in our awards and so, at long fuck*ng last, here are the nominees for BEST COMIC:


Roast Beef's Stomach Needs A Name...

We've all been there. Greg, Nick or Nestor, whoever he is, he has been in your body and you have had this conversation. Hilarity ensues with a dose of knowing chuckles thrown in, especially for those of a distinctly non-foody persuasion such as myself.


Sideburn Generator

Every man's biggest curiosity and worst nightmare made manifest.


Roast Beef Takes a Gamble

It's these moments that show why Achewood is more than the sum of it's parts. Clean lines, simple onomatopoeia, and a single subtle change of expression provide more intensity and emotion than an entire Dan Brown novel. Or his entire oeuvre even.


Christmas Eve 1981

Poignant.


The Visible Heel of Adam Smith

A by turns funny, worrying and fascinating insight into what I can only assume is the common American pastime of 'ga-rarrge' sales. A brilliant Roast Beef comic in ways that contrast brilliantly from the two above.






AND THE WINNER IS!

THE VISIBLE HEEL OF ADAM SMITH

I'm going to go pass out in a bit unless I've won something. Good night!

Thanks to Paul for being an awesome dude setting this up!

No thanks to me for being a dick!

Congratulations, comic strip from several months ago!  You were the best!

Boo to the one cartoon that got nominated but didn't receive a single vote.  Someone should have checked your credentials more thoroughly at the door.

Yay, something I nominated won!

(Though I didn't actually vote for it.  Never mind, then.)
