Here we are True Believers, the first annual Root Beer Party awards for comic greatness. We open up our ceremony honoring the great humanitarian comic works of Kim Belding of Picpak Dog comics. http://www.picpak.net/ who generously donated his character Mr. Blob to the Root Beer Party to become our official mascot. Not only that, but he does monthly sketches for his peatrons https://www.patreon.com/picpak?ty=h and can always be counted on to provide a much needed guest comic to just about any comic creator on the web.
As if that wasn’t enough, he also went beyond the call of duty and started his own radio station QCindie http://tunein.com/radio/QCIndiecom-s253577/ to share his love of music with the world.
As one of the co-founders of the Root Beer Party, Kim’s generosity extends to the inspiring choice of a gift he sent to us with 12 different root beers to try out over the holidays. It is sometimes awkward to talk about the virtues of someone and give them praise when it is due, but we open our award season this year by commending Kim for his generosity of spirit and his commitment to his art, as well as the art of others. Our first award of the golden phonograph award goes to Kim Belding, the comic creator we all aspire to emulate. So the first toast of root beer is for our good friend Kim (A&W of course) for most generous comic creator.
Tune in tomorrow as we reveal our next category and the winner is????
Until then True Believers, may your mug always be frosted and your root beer always foamy.
