Thanks, Wanders, I always look forward to this. I had to make several hard choices amid so much bounty.

On a side note, after looking at so many panels from the past year, it seems as if, for the last few days, someone else has been drawing the strip. There are differences, particularly in the faces. Comments, gang?

Ken's Orange Overcoat said...

We've seen shifts in style like that before. It could just be because of using clip art or new meds for Uncle Joe.

Nance said...

fauxprof--I was thinking the same thing today. I wonder if JG is away for the holidays and an assistant is drawing, or perhaps a new artist is slowly taking the reins.

wanders--thanks for doing the worthies. so much fun!

Downpuppy said...

Can I write in today's Panel 2 for Panel of the Year? Ynfirgettabke!

r u ok? said...

Nice selection Wanders - always brings a smile to my face. I wish that the Pax Resort panel of the year nominee had some desert gulls in it - that would be icing on the [pink] cake.

Dave in Parma said...

Uncle Joe is working on his art after a dip of eggnog perhaps?

Steve said...

I'm excited to be able to vote for the Worthy Awards this year. Wanders has provided quite the smorgasbord for citizens of the community.

mrvy said...

Wonderful choices! One small thing - I see no option for selecting K2 as Outstanding Guest Character. I agree that perhaps a different artist has been drawing the past week or so.

Muscato said...

While initially I was sad that neither of my two favorite characters - Chin Napkin or the Ants- got a nod, I quickly reminded myself that Garbo never got an Oscar. At least there's pleny of recognition of the enigmatic splendor that was John Dill.

(If Mary ties the knot with K2, maybe he'll still be in Manhattan and bake the cake!)

Joolz said...

It was an honor to vote for the Worthy Awards. I look forward to the award ceremony at the Waldorf.

KitKat said...

Wanders, thank you for providing this 2013 Review of the Worthiverse! So many options - voting was not easy. I also noted again the resemblance between Elinor Kinley and DOSC - yikes.

Well, I'd better get to Nordstrom Rack to buy my attire for the Worthy Awards ceremony!

TimP said...

Maybe it's just my whacky web browser, but I can't seem to vote for Ken Kensington. He's a late comer, but between his hair style, his tour guidance and instance Mary obsession make him my favorite.

Mary'sHairHelmet said...

How about a new category for next year: plot with the most potential for interesting developments that died on the vine? My vote would go to TomDear/BethDear/MotherDearest.

KitKat said...

I think @Mary'sHairHelmet at3:40 p.m. is on to something. I'd vote for Iris's felon son, Tommy, moving into his mother's Charterstone digs.

Of course, life in the Worthiverse presents limitless categories for awards...

Vicki said...

Seeing Aggie again was lovely! Now THERE is a character that had so much promise, but just left us twisting in the wind. All the really good ones disappear like that.

Peggy Olson said...

Wanders, you've reminded us that this has been a very busy year. I forgot all about Tom/Beth Dear, but was delighted to see Elinor's dream sequence again.

Who would think that the Floating Head category would be the hardest to choose!

Thanks for another Worthy winner, Wanders!

Thanks for a great year.

I think that the "Giella Three" are home on Christmas break and have taken over for Uncle Joe until after the New Year!

I do regret that "Mary shakes hand with black man" did not make the cut. It makes me laugh thinking about it.
