... Put the list in a safe place

Comics from Nick Mag's comics section were honored in the Houghton Mifflin
Best American Comics 2006 anthology, edited by Anne Elizabeth Moore and
Harvey Pekar. The five "winning" comics from Nick Mag are listed in the back
of the collection and not actually shown (aw!) so here they are.

Viking Crush by Dan Abdo

4D by Kim Deitch

The Idiom-tastic Animal Detectives
One of our personal favorite Nick Mag one offs EVER! Travis Nichols lives in
Austin and is funny.

Telephone by Kurt Wolfgang
Kurt's done a couple of comics for us, including this one and some witty
marginals...wish he'd do more!

Believe it or not, we're showing you Kurt's sketch for the winning comic
(story and content wise it didn't change at all in the final). If it was by
anyone else, you'd probably swear this WAS the final version. He's that
good, ladies and gents.
