Comics and Canada: the Gene Day Award

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.
