Missed It: Two Awards Winners I Forgot To Mention
* that lovely veteran of mainstream comics Sal Buscema will receive the HERO Lifetime Achivement Award in conjunction with the Baltimore Comic-Con weekend in September
. I think that's nice. I enjoyed a lot of Sal Buscema comics when I was a kid, and like looking at them now, and while he was not one of his generation's foundational talents it seems to me he had an honorable and lengthy career in a realm where both of those things were difficult.
* looking back at my coverage of July's Eisner Awards, it seems like I missed mentioning that Russel Roehling won this year's Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award
. I like Russ Manning and I like promising newcomers, so that just has to have been a mistake on my part. Congratulations to Mr. Roehling. One thing I like about the Eisners is this run of other awards that are given out on the same night, although they are pretty rough on the flow of the awards program. The Manning one is the one I like the most, mostly because I'm so old now the thought of having to make distinctions in terms of people being new one year and not the next is completely out of my grasp. They also tend to go to people with craft chops, folks that tend to gravitate to corners of comics that are not my main areas of attention. You can see his stuff here
. That's one of his pieces below.
