    1. “The Wiccas”? I suppose that works.

      You know guys, instead of making your Slam Awards, why not just do a more positive one? It’s not like the WCCAs have a monopoly on glad-handing.

    2. The Wiccas came from Ryan's presentation and it worked for me. I love Welton.

      We've had some debate for awhlie among ourselves and some of readers and originally we were going to do a more positive one. For all intensive purposes though Mark is doing a decent job if only he's a little strapped for resources. In addition I'm not sure web comics is yet big enough to support two awards and I also don't have the resources to do it right.

      That's where this second idea came from. We're really not looking for a slam but actually to have fun with ourselves. Part of the criteria for being nominated will require a certain number of readers to qualify and in the end we hope to point out to younger strips the pitfalls to avoid.

      What does everyone else think? I haven’t begun anything yet and I'm totally winning to turn everything around to have something like the Grammys. I will just need a lot more help then I was expecting.

    3. 100% agree William. We scratched that award as soon as we finished the podcast. The thing is though that I might actually be able to do an award show. While at NYCC I made some contacts which may help get something at SDCC.
