Show Some Love For xkcd

I don't have a membership to Loncon 3, the WorldCon in London this summer, so I am a little out of the loop.

Are the Hugo nominations still open? And am I right that there's some kind of other media category?

Because SOMEONE needs to nominate Randall Monroe's Time on xkcd for SOMETHING. As I said from my weakened state in my hospital bed back in the summer...
Back on 26 March I posted about an epic unfolding in the web comic XKCD.

I've been hospitalized since May 6th, and was still checking to see what was happening in Time.

Then I got very sick and I haven't looked at it for a couple of months.

Well, it turned out that the brilliant Randall Munroe ended it on Friday, July 26th.

And I cannot believe how far it had gotten.

Well played. And deserves a Hugo nomination.

Really. It is that good. That unlikely. That important.

Sorry I'm on the Kindle Fire HD and so not setting up proper HTML links.

Okay? Thanks everyone, I'm getting off the unsteady soapbox now and going back to watching The Oscars.
