The Original Johnson(story of Jack Johnson) gets nominated for awards!!

2010 Glyph Comics Awards Nominations; 'Original Johnson' snags 4 nominations!
This is a book I worked on with the comic legend, TREVOR VON EEDEN.
He gave Frank Miller a run for his storytelling ability in the '80s. This was awesome to be a part of...nothing is better as an inker to work with someone you admire. I hope we win.
I meant to put this up a LOOOONNG time ago. But its all good.
Heres the byline:

The Glyph Comics Awards, designed to "recognize the best in comics made by, for, and about people of color from the preceding calendar year," have released the names of the comics and creators that make up their 2010 nominee slate.

We are incredibly proud that The Original Johnson has received four nominations in the categories of Best Artist, Best Cover, Best Male Character, and Story Of The Year.

"It's wonderful to see Trevor Von Eeden's life-work receive such recognition," ComicMix editor-in-chief Mike Gold said. "He's been working on The Original Johnson for 15 years, and we've been working with him for the past three. It has taken an extraordinary amount of effort to produce this book, and recognition from the Glyph awards makes every drop of it worthwhile. We are proud to be associated with Trevor and this amazingly intense work. My personal thanks and gratitude to Trevor and to all of those who have been involved in the effort."

The awards will be presented at the East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention in Philadelphia on May 14th and 15th.
