BBXX: Baby Blues Decades 1 & 2 is nominated for Best Humor Publication. Inside the hardcover anniversary edition, readers are guided through the history of Baby Blues as Kirkman and Scott share personal reflections and never-before-published essays, drawings, and photographs, along with 600 of the most popular Baby Blues strips from the last two decades.

Team Cul De Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line
