Your 2018 Ringo Award Nominees

imageI'm not totally certain how long they've been up, but the front page of The Mike Wieringo Comic Book Industry Awards (aka the Ringo Awards) have gone up on their front page with instructions on how to vote.

The awards program is named for the late, popular artist Mike Wieringo (1963-2007), who in addition to be a much-admired artist worked a style that broke with many mainstream comics conventions.

This year's professional jury was Michael Cavna, Marty Grosser, Karla Marsh-Southern, Rob Still and Gus Vazquez. The awards program is held the weekend of Baltimore Comic-Con, which this year is September 28-30.

Congratulations to all nominees.
