Two bits of good news for me and Scratch9 came down earlier this month.
First up, the book got nominated in four categories in the 29th annual Comics Buyer’s Guide Fan Awards!
The comic is up for “Favorite Comic Book or Mini Series” and “Favorite Story”. Jason Kruse is up for “Favorite Cover Artist.” And I’m nominated for “Favorite Writer.” Cool!
Lets hope some of the fans vote for us.
Right after that we learned that we’ve been nominated for a Will Eisner Comic Industry Award! We got a nod in the “Best Publication for Kids” category along with five other great comics.
Such an amazing honor! I would be nice to win one of them, but it really is a thrill just to be nominated.
The Scratch9 collected trade paper back edition is due in stores in about a month. Have you ordered yours yet?
If not, we’ve got three easy paths to the Scratch9 TPB hookup!

I got a nice mention in the Dearborn Press & Guide this week, spotlighting my upcoming appearance at Green Brain Comics supporting Scratch9 and giving a sense of my crooked path into writing comics.Read More

The first issue of Scratch9 is due to ship this month and I realize I’ve been a bit remiss in posting about the book here at robworley.com. I have been keeping Scratch9.com current with all the latest and greatest buzz, of if you’ve been visiting there you’re up to speed.
If not here’s some interesting stuff you missed:
Now, we don’t know the exact shipping date of issue #1. We’ll have that for you soon. If you haven’t bugged your local comic shop you may want to do that now because they may have overlooked us! If you want to help your retailer order a copy of any of the issues so far, you should give him these ordering codes: Issue 1 – #JUN10 0739, Issue 2 – #JUL10 0753 and Issue 3 – #AUG10 0753
