Back to school and work JSA update for Sept. 4

Welcome back! Hope your summer was as eventful as ours was.

We’re now a mere 11 days away from the presentation of the 8th annual Joe Shuster Awards and we’ll be posting some updates as we near the event.

JURY DECISIONS

The Art Jury (Artist, Cover Artist and Webcomics) have finished their selections, as have the ones selecting the Dragon Prize and the Gene Day Award for Self-Publishing. That leaves the Retailer Jury and the Story Jury (Cartoonist and Writer), and we hope to have those wrapped up later today or early tomorrow.

HARRY KREMER RETAILER AWARD FINALISTS

The 10 stores have been narrowed down to a final five – watch for a release here shortly.

  1. So why is there no Hall Of Fame award this year?
    p.s. I wanted Murray Karn, just saying…

  2. The Hall of Fame committee didn’t decide on a recipient in time so it was decided that since it was too late to properly coordinate things with a recipient and/or their family members in time for the Montreal show, that this year we would forego it. Certainly Murray Kam was discussed and he may be one of the inductees in 2013.
