Toronto ComiCON thanks… and JSA updates.

A special thanks goes out to our extended JSA family that assisted at the booth this weekend at the HobbyStar Toronto ComiCON Fan Appreciation Event. They assisted our admin members who also did shifts at the 2-day event, as well as Robert Haines who was out connecting with guests about the awards. We received a few more pieces for the upcoming Visions: Wolverine art show, and a number of entries for consideration for the upcoming Gene Day award.

This week: Peter Fisico and I will be preparing for the JSA booth at next weekend’s Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, we will be wrapping up the signing schedule at the JSA booth at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival on May 9-10, Robert and Jennifer Stewart will be finalizing the nominees for the Comics for Kids Awards, and James will be confirming the arrangements with the 2009 Joe Shuster Awards Jury and the group is currently assembling the jury packages with the nominated works. This year’s jury will consist of five members, and there will be an announcement soon with the details of who they are.

Comics for Kids Award Nominees and 2009 Hall of Fame Inductees will be announced on Friday, May 1st, 2009.

Congratulations from the entire Joe Shuster Awards organization go out to CCBCAA member Robert Haines and Comics for Kids Award organizer Jennifer Stewart, who announced their engagement last weekend!
