The Glyph Comics Awards, designed to “recognize the best in comics made
by, for, and about people of color from the preceding calendar year,”
have released the names of the comics and creators that make up their 2010 nominee slate.
We are incredibly proud that The Original Johnson has received four nominations in the categories of Best Artist, Best Cover, Best Male Character, and Story Of The Year.
“It’s wonderful to see Trevor Von Eeden’s life-work receive such recognition,” ComicMix editor-in-chief Mike Gold said. “He’s been working on The Original Johnson for 15 years, and we’ve been working with him for the past three. It has taken an extraordinary amount of effort to produce this book, and recognition from the Glyph awards makes every drop of it worthwhile. We are proud to be associated with Trevor and this amazingly intense work. My personal thanks and gratitude to Trevor and to all of those who have been involved in the effort.”
Glenn is VP of Production at ComicMix. He has written Star Trek and X-Men stories and worked for DC Comics, Simon & Schuster, Random House, arrogant/MGMS and Apple Comics. He's also what happens when a Young Turk of publishing gets old.
Congrats to all involved with the production of the book, and to Mr. Von Eden in particular. It must feel awesome to receive this kind of recognition for a labor of love.
Ah, "The Original Johnson." It's well drawn. I remember back when ComicMix used to publish this.
I just got this book yesterday. It's not perfect, but it's decent. I will get volume 2 if it is released. I see the book originally advertised it for May 2010, but now Amazon has it due for release in March 2011, so I hope it's not delayed again.
