2008 Isotope Minicomics Award Submissions Open
I’m pleased and honored to once again serve as a judge for the Isotope Award For Excellence in Mini-Comics, which has begun accepting submissions for this year’s award.
“There is honestly nothing that makes me happier each year than to get the opportunity to help spotlight a creator who is toiling in the underground making something wonderful,” said James Sime, proprietor of Isotope, the comic book lounge in San Francisco. “And I know that many of you out there are hand-crafting some mini-comics brilliance, let us help share that work with the world!”
In addition to Sime and me, judges include Josh Cotter, 2004 winner of the Isotope Award for his minicomic Skyscrapers of the Midwest, since republished by AdHouse Books; Jason McNamara, Xeric Award-winning author of several books, including The Martian Confederacy; and Kirsten Baldock, librarian and Isotope Special Projects Director.
To enter, send five copies of your minicomic to Isotope at 326 Fell Street, San Francisco, CA 94102, before October 24 at midnight.
The award will be given out in conjunction with the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco. Because of the nature of this award, the winner will be contacted in advance and must be present at the Isotope at 9 PM on Saturday, November 1, for the award presentation ceremony.
