Some among you already know about the Joe Shuster Awards, our own counterparts to the like of the Harveys and Eisners south of the border.
They've added a new category: the Gene Day Award for Canadian Self-Publishing.
I refer you to the Shuster Awards' own page on the subject in the second link above.
What do I think?
I think this is another good step in building a home-grown comics sector in Canada's entertainment industry. I want to see us get to the point where everyone with talent and ambition to do so can make a decent living in the field. It can only help the country for that to happen.
