Stuff has happened...

Hey guys! OvO

I was wondering...

Most of you know TEN was entered in the run for the audience award of the Max & Moritz Prize this year. (The biggest German award for comic artists!) - Mainly because I pestered you with "please vote for me!" stuff over the months before June 19th. X'D

I never spoke about it again after the prize giving ceremony.
You probably already guessed, that TEN didn't make first place... but that's not why I kept my mouth shut about the whole thing.
Actually there's a damn big story about what happened that evening and the aftermath is still going on.

So I was thinking... do you want to know what happened?
You might get angry or aggrevated (not with me though) - or not. I can't estimate how you'd feel about all of it. The situation of German original manga in Germany and stuff...
It's a not a short story and a whee bit personal - of course, because it's not only about TEN, but about me as its creator and one of the few professional OGL creators here in Germany.

Are you interested?

Yes, I would like to know what happened. But! Only if you feel comfortable having it out on the internet. If don't want to post it here then maybe on your Tumblr then link on Smackjeeves?

Oh, it's out on the internet alright. But only in German.
I was just never sure how much you would like to hear about... well not so nice stuff. (that's probably not all about TEN)

If you don't want to type it all out you could send links to the articles. I use a couple of translation programs to read sites not in English. After your post I went looking for articles this morning but all I could find was the listings of the winners and such, no real commentary.

I'll write it all down for you. =) Don't worry.
Just as I said it's not a short story, so it takes a bit.

Yikes! If its that much typing you can just post the links. Hate to have you typing away when you could be drawing. Still, thank you for thinking of us fans.

Don't worry. I'm writing on it in my "spare time". And as I'm almost done it would be a waste not to finish it. ;D
I think I'll be able to post this today.
