When Randall Munroe finished “Time,” a hugely vast comic which unfurled as one giant image over the next 123 days, I felt certain this astounding, one-of-a-kind achievement would get some Eisner notice, but this year’s jury had other ideas, and that’s okay. However it was nominated and won the Graphic Story Hugo Award, which were presented yesterday at the World SF Con at Loncon 3. io9 has an account of all the pageantry, which did not include fat jokes, but did include funny dressing up. The infamous Red Wedding episode of Game of Thrones, “The Rains of Castamere,” beat out Doctor Who and Orphan Black which shocked many but hey, Red Wedding.
