THE BLACK BEETLE NOMINATED FOR AN EISNER!!!!!
SO SO EXCITED and proud to announce that my first adventure of THE BLACK BEETLE, NO WAY OUT, has been nominated for an Eisner in the BEST LIMITED SERIES category! :)
I am beyond ecstatic for this huge recognition, specially considering how much work I’ve put in my first foray in the industry as full creator (writer/artist/colorist) on something this big.
Thank you thank you thank you, everyone, for making this possible :)
And special thanks to Lisa, Jim, Mike, Nate, and everyone else who helped me with the Beetle (if you have bought the HC - and have you, right? ;) - you know whom I am talking about).
I have some tough competition in that category, and bummer that they are all my dear friends - Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra’s COLDER, Mike RIchardson and Stan Sakai’s 47 RONIN, Scott SNyder and Sean Murphy’s THE WAKE, and Jeff Lemire’s TRILLIUM - but I hope the Beetle can bring home that mirable trophy :)
And if that wasn’t enough, I have been also nominated for a INKWELL AWARDS in the ALL IN ONE (artist who ink their own pencils) category. The ballots are now available online here https://inkwellawards.justsurvey.me/4f4661444f54 and everyone can vote, so please consider taking a few minutes and cast your vote for my inking on Black Beetle and Afterlife and a bunch of other books I worked on in 2013 :)
