Your 2015 SPACE Prize Finalists


Bob Corby of the venerable indie-show SPACE has announced this year's round of finalists for its prizes. The launch page for that is here, with a ton of individual links to follow out.

My memory is that the SPACE prizes are done year to year by collecting work at the previous show for prize acknowledgment at the current year's show. That's why 2015 is acknowledged rather than 2016. SPACE is one of the big comics-in-Columbus events of any year, and its pedigree stretches back to the mid-1990s and the first flowering of such shows nationally.

Congratulations to the finalists and to all those that entered. SPACE is April 9-10, 2016.
