Post HOUSEPETS! NOMINATED FOR BEST COMIC STRIP
(We have a thread for this in Not The Comic, but, uh... this concerns the comic. Sorry mods. :P)

Housepets! is one of the finalists for the 2009 Ursa Major Awards! The comic has been nominated for Best Newspaper-style Comic Strip, alongside Kevin and Kell, Freefall, Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures, and Doc Rat. If Rick wins, a bunch of furries will give him a giant trophy in the shape of a bear, or something! Yay! :D

Voting starts today, March 13, and runs through April 18. Voting itself is a two-part process: you must first enter an e-mail address to receive a voting key, which will then allow you to proceed to the final ballot. This is probably an anti-box-stuffing measure, so I assume that anyone will only be able to vote once.

If you've been griping about HP's standing on the TWC, this is your chance to vote for something that doesn't get reset every month. Plus, you have a whole month for yourself and all your friends to vote, so there's no excuse not to do it!

Ratchet n' Clank, of course! Antrocat, shooting everything that moves with awesome crazy weapons - what can be funnier?

I'll be more happy with being nominated for a Eisner Award myself. Usra Major kind of lost any sort of cred when Softpaw was allowed to be nominated for a award.

Voting ends on the 18th of this month. They'll announce winners I think like a month or so after that. Though I'm not 100% sure.

Woah, good thing you aren't competing in the Graphic Story section.
It will be interesting to see who wins between TwoKinds and Lackadaisy.

As for the Best Comic Strip...
The amount of activity on the other comic strips' forums seems to indicate more readers.
But they don't seem to have comment boxes, so more people on the forums are to be expected.

Should be a close one. Good luck Housepets! *waves a little Housepets! flag*
Have my vote at any rate =D.

At a furry convention: FA United. Um, Fur Affinity's official con, I think?

Yes, and it's entirely possible that the first official "Fender" fursuit will make an appearance at said convention...

Obey the Ferrox!
