2013 Joe Shuster Award Nominees Announced

The Joe Shuster Awards, Canada’s award honoring the men and women in the comics field, announced their nominees yesterday. These included nominees for Créateur de Bandes Dessinées Web (or Webcomics Creator for you anglophones).

Canadians have had a very strong presence in webcomics. Previous winners include Karl Kerschl and Cameron Stewart. However, I have to say I’m not that familiar with this year’s crop of nominees. (Nor am I all that familiar with Emily Carroll’s work, which won in 2011 and 2012.)

Also, here’s a weird anomaly: the Joe Shuster Award has never gone to Kate Beaton (though she has been nominated from time to time). However, it HAS gone to Ryan Sohmer and Lar deSouza.

Let that sink in a little.


About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

    So, it’s a prize about never missing a deadline and then boasting about it while decrying the very same medium you are using to convey your work?
