The 2011 Harvey Award Nomination Ballot is now available. Nominations for the Harvey Awards are selected exclusively by creators – those who write, draw, ink, letter, color, design, edit or are otherwise involved in a creative capacity in the comics field. If you\’re a pro, you should nominate your favourites from 2010.
If you\’re feeling so inclined, here are some categories that I think ye olde Skullkickers is most applicable for:
Marshall Dillon. Marshall works his tail off on Skullkickers, providing the typical dialogue and sound effects, but also fun alternate narration bits, subtitles and more, enhancing the humour and improving the storytelling at each step.
Misty Coats. Misty\’s moody and dramatic colors give Skullkickers that extra kick every single issue. Flip through any of our 5 released issues and you can\’t help but notice the quality of her palettes.
BEST COVER ARTIST
Chris Stevens. Chris\’ Frazetta-esque covers are eye-popping and engaging, delivering the feel of an old fantasy paperback while never seeming old fashioned.
MOST PROMISING NEW TALENT
Edwin Huang. Edwin\’s drawing and storytelling skills are well beyond his years and he\’s getting better with every single issue.
BEST NEW SERIES
Skullkickers. We\’re an ongoing now and people seem to be digging it. Comedy books aren\’t typical award fare, but I think we\’re delivering the goods with each issue. On time and high quality.
SPECIAL AWARD FOR HUMOR IN COMICS
If we weren\’t as applicable for the previous category, I hope you\’d think of us as solidly appropriate here. 🙂
