Your 2010 Maisie Kukoc Award Winner


I'm guessing from this Elijah Brubaker tweet that Sarah Oleksyk has won the 2010 Maisie Kukoc award for her mini-comic Ivy #5. The Maisie Kukoc is a cool award in that it actually provides cash to the mini-comic cartoonist who wins it, ostensibly to facilitate the production of more comics. Past winners are Vanessa Davis, Sarah Glidden and Andy Hartzell.

Other nominees for this year's award were Will Dinski (Covered In Confusion), Damien Jay (The Natural World #1-2), Jonas Madden-Connor (Ochre Ellipse #3), Corinne Mucha (Buzz #3; My Every Single Thought) and John Porcellino (King-Cat #70).

The award was to be given out this evening at an event at Guapo in conjunction with this weekend's Stumptown Comics Fest.
