Stuart Immonen wins a Shuster Award!
June 9, 2010
With the just-released Moving Pictures continuing to pull in rave reviews, we're pleased as punch to announce that the Canadian comic book community has just honored Stuart Immonen with the Joe Shuster Award for Best Artist!
Since awards are retrospective, this honor officially recognizes only Stuart's 2009 work as a freelance artist for Marvel & Image Comics. But we know that his legion of fans are going to be blown away by the power and precision showcased in his brand-new book drawn from Kathryn Immonen's script, Moving Pictures, which Booklist called "elegant and evocative" in a starred review.
The Shuster Awards are selected by jury to honor the best in Canadian comics. Previously the award for Best Cartoonist went to Top Shelf star Jeff Lemire, who was nominated again this year, as was Moving Pictures writer Kathryn Immonen.
Congratulations to Stuart and all the nominees & winners!
