Woke up this morning to some amazing news. Saltwater #1, our most recent book from KikaMika Comics has been nominated for a Shuster Award. It’s a major award in the comics industry. It is also Canada’s highest award in the Comic book industry. Win or lose, we are now always Shuster Award Nominees. Congrats to my partner Keith Grachow (the Canadian). Saltwater #2 is being printed as we speak. -Mitch
Named after the late Howard Eugene Day (1951-1982), this award honours Canadian comic book creators or creative teams who self-published their work but did not have the books distributed by a third party such as Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc. The nominees were selected from individual publications submitted for review before the deadline of May 30th, 2016.
