Kitty Nirvana: The First Ginger & Shadow Collection wins a Silver Medal at the IPPY Awards.
The IPPY's are hosted by Independent Publisher Magazine and were presented at their 12th Annual Banquet in Los Angeles on May 30th, coinciding with BookExpo. The awards recognize the best independently published books of the past year - in 64 national categories, ten Outstanding Book of the Year categories, and 20 Best Regional Fiction and Non-Fiction categories.
Kitty Nirvana chronicles the adventures of two mismatched cats & their adopted family. The first collection gathers 170 of the Barry Corbett's webcomic features into one 96 page volume. Ginger & Shadow has begun posting twice a week on DrunkDuck as of June, 2008.
When the Garrick family decided to adopt a pet, they chose a pair of very unusual cats. As different as night and day, these interesting and mysterious creatures would turn their lives inside out. Ginger and Shadow are your classic odd-couple pairing- two personalities that couldn't be more opposed.
Barry has been publishing cartoons and comic strips for well over 10 years. In 2003 he published a Graphic Novel, Gormon: The Sentinel Awakes and followed that up in 2005 with his first paperback, Embrace the Pun ! Chock full of pun-based panel cartoons, it's a tongue-in-cheek tribute to that ''lowest form of humor''.
Barry's popular Webcomics Star Crossed and Rafferty can be found at corbettfeatures.com . His panel cartoons have regularly appeared in national publications such as American Legion Magazine, Lacrosse Magazine, The CityTown Extra, The Artist's Magazine, True West Magazine, The Valley News, Bounce Magazine, Skipping Stones, The Chicago Loop News and FiftySomething Magazine.
Barry is joined at Corbett Features by fellow creator Brian Codagnone, who produces the Misfits and S1019 comic strips and also contributes a humor column. Corbett Features premiered on the internet in June of 2000 and has since drawn thousands of fans. The site updates daily and offers 6 different cartoon features.
