This year’s nominees for the Russ Manning award, given out every year during San Diego Comic-Con since 1982, have been announced. The award recognises outstanding new art talent (although this year has re-nominated two of the artists who were on the 2012 shortlist, so I’m not quite sure how that works). Here’s the list of nominees for 2013:
Rem Broo, artist of The End Times of Bram and Ben (published by Image)
Craig Cermak, artist of Voltron, Year One (published by Dynamite)
Bryan Coyle, artist of Babble (published by Com.x)
Paul Roman Martinez, writer/artist of The Adventures of the 19XX (self-published)
Russell Roeling, artist of Wasteland (published by Oni)
Congratulations to all the nominees! You can find out more via the official site.
