Your 2019 Ringo Awards Winners

image

It was a genial, affectionate awards program, that moved at a less-than-two-hours clip. Jose Luis Garcia Lopez (Hero Initiative) and a very surprised Louise Simonson (Dick Giordano) won the career-spanner prizes.

I participated in this year's program as a judge. I was flattered to be asked and was treated totally above-board.

Winners in bold.
