Gord Downie is Up for a…Comic Book Award? Yep.
Canadian comic book nerds know all about the Joe Schuster Awards, which are given out to deserving Canadian creators. The awards, which were established in 2004, are named after the guy–a Canadian–who co-created some character named Superman in 1938 for a publisher called National Periodical Productions. They later changed their name to DC Comics.
This year’s nominees included Gord Downie in the category of writer for his work on Secret Path. The full story on the JSAs can be found here. (Via Brent)
