Just announced this morning is the news that we (Conor and Anthony) have been nominated for a 2012 Joe Shuster Award for Best Writing! This is the second-year in a row in which we have received a nod and we’re quite pleased and touched by the nomination. We were nommed for our work on Issues 9 – 12 of the series, all of which were released in the first-half of 2011. Thanks to Kevin Boyd, who does a fantastic job organizing the entire process, the nominating committee, and everyone else associated (even Robert Haines… Boo…). And congrats to all of the nominees.
A full list of the nominees can be found by clicking on the logo.
We’d be remiss for not expressing our disappointment that artist Andy Belanger failed to receive a nomination for his artwork for the series. Andy has done a superb job on the series (especially the last four issues – see sample below) and it pains us that he’s not recognized. He definitely deserves to be – his layout and art is on the cutting edge and much stronger than most comic creators today.
