Karen Green, Calvin Reid, Steven Heller To Get Push & Kick Award
Here. That's Karen Green of Columbia University and various NYC-related comics activities, Calvin Reid, the longtime champion of graphic novels and comics at PW and Steven Heller of SVA and formerly of the New York Times Book Review. The award is officially called "The First Annual Push and Kick Awards for Excellence in the World of Graphic Books," and is being given out at this event it looks like sort of in conjunction/as a celebration of/directly alluding to the release of the third volume of Russ Kick's super-successful Graphic Canon anthology in June. All those people are really admirable choices for any award, so I hope people turn out to shake their hands and tell them so.
