Cartoonist Mikhaela Reid has photos and reminiscences of the recent East Coast Black Age of Comics con and the Glyph Awards in Philly. The above picture shows Joseph Wheeler III, Iyabo Shabazz and Masheka Wood. Much more in link.

Plus we got to present the award for Best Comic Strip to amazing fellow Cartoonist With Attitude Keith Knight, for his strip The K Chronicles (a second-time winner!). Keith took photos of his own butt on the way up to the podium and remarked that it was nice to be at a convention where no one mistook him for Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder. He also later noted that the food at ECBACC (BBQ, meatballs, rice, jerk chicken, fried chicken, and other delights) was far superior to the usual comics convention concessions (typically suspiciously gray hot dogs and burgers).
