I am absolutely blown away, this really is a dream come true. So thanks to everyone, the artists, the 2000AD staff who always help when I can't track someone down, The Mighty Tharg and, of course, the fantastic readers for your kind comments and re-tweets. This really has made my Christmas special, it's wonderful to be honoured for doing something that gives me so much joy!

Before I start, can I again say a gigantic thank you on behalf of all the readers of this blog and all the artists who've supported it over the year. You are wonderful people! Of course, I'd like to say a special thank you to Simon Parr for helping me out when I couldn't track down an artist, he really does give a lot of time to this blog so THANK YOU PYE!
