Hi everyone! Nicole's intern here, with some hard hitting Nicole Georges news straight from the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction! So much stuff going on, we here at NJG Inc. can barely keep on top of it.

Nicole strikes a Dan Clowes pose for the CCS 2014 Facebook

First up, gee whiz, look at all the end of the year attention Calling Dr. Laura is getting!

It was in the running for Best Graphic Novel of the Year over at Goodreads! named it one of their Ten Unforgettable Graphic Novels of 2013, calling it "idiosyncratic and adorable" while packing "a surprising emotional wallop!"

And Pop Candy lists it over on USA Today as one of 2013's Best Graphic Novels!

Wow! Ol' NJG is really hitting the big times. But that's not all the news! No way, there's more!

Nicole has a comic in Northwest Press's new QU33R Anthology!

Edited by Ignatz-winner Rob Kirby, it features 241 pages (wow!) of new comics from 33 legendary and new queer cartoonists, and it is now available for pre-order!

Also! Don't forget Lil Bub's Lil Book is now available to order! Nicole got her copy in the mail just yesterday, and it looks great! Not to mention there's some Lil Bub fan art by Nicole herself in there!

Good job Nicole! Good job Bub!

And one last thing! It's time for the 2013 Cartoonist Studio Prize, sponsored by the Center for Cartoon Studies and Slate!

 and how to submit your graphic novel or webcomic for consideration!

That's it for now, folks! I'm not even getting paid to say all these nice things! Really! It's something Nicole and I should probably talk about actually.

Calendar Time, & CZF Buttons!

It's been a while. I'm here in Vermont, in the midst of watching Breaking Bad with Ponyo, and I have new calendars to show you!
I got the calendars printed at Brown Printing in Portland, and had my pet chicken Phyllis help me with some modeling while I was there. They are "Rubine Red", which looks like a hot hot pink! I'm attaching some photos below.

ALSO, I have a new intern!
Please welcome cartoonist Mathew New the NJG Inc. He is doing exhaustive work teaching Ponyo to jump through a hoop, photographing original art of cats in wigs, and writing copy about teams of Owlets and what they might want.

I'll post more later, but in the meantime, you can purchase a button of this lovely pug woman to benefit the Chicago Zine Fest, alongside work by John Porcellino, Suzy X, Lilli Carré, Neil Brideau & Ramsey Beyer. Okay okay okay, I have to go take a nap and watch more Breaking Bad. Get calendars and original art from my Etsy Page!!!! xox n.g.
