The winners of The Joe Shuster Awards for Canadian Comic creators will be announced at a ceremony at the Guelph Comics Jam convention tonight. This is the first time the Shusters have taken place in Guelph but fitting since local comic book shop The Dragon is a major sponsor of the awards in the form of The Dragon Award for best Canadian kids comic. The awards ceremony will also feature the induction of several creators into the Shusters’s hall of fame. This year’s inductees are Al Hewitson, Dale Keown, Ken Lashley, and Gerhard (at this time, Sequential cannot confirm if any of these gentlemen will be in attendance to receive their plaques).

See here for the first batch of nominees for the various awards:
