Introducing The Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award Nominee Bryan Coyle!2013 sees the return of The Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award - and it gives me great pleasure to announce that Bryan Coyle has been nominated for his work on Babble!
The Russ Manning Award - named for the artist Russ Manning, best known for his work on the Tarzan and Star Wars newspaper strips and Magnus, Robot Fighter - has been given out annually at the San Diego Comic-Con since 1982. It's presented to a comics artist who, early in his or her career, shows a superior knowledge and ability in the art of creating comics - which, if anyone's read Bryan's work on Babble and beyond, will know that's something he certainly has in spades!
The award recipient will be announced during the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 19 2013, and I sincerely hope you'll join me in wishing Bryan the best of luck!
