It turns out that Return Me to the Sea made the "notable comics" list in the back of theBest American Comics 2009, which is part of "Best American" series. I don't know how long the book has been out, but I just now found out about it, so I'm acting like it just happened. My friends Corinne Mucha and Jeff Zwirek were also selected, for Shithole and Burning Building Stories, respectively. Its just a tiny note in the back of a thick book, but it's the most recognition that I've had this far, and it means a lot to me. To infinity and beyond.
