Assembled by the Canadian Comic Book Creator Awards Association, the Joe Shuster Awards are Canada’s most recognized award program featuring outstanding achievement in the creation of comic books and graphic novels. The awards are named after pioneering Toronto-born artist Joe Shuster who, along with writer Jerry Siegel, created the iconic Superman.
MOONSHOT Volume 2 was nominated earlier this year for the First Nations Community READ Award Program and has already won the Bronze Medal for “Best Graphic Novel – Drama” at the 22nd Annual Independent Publisher Awards (which is the same award that Volume 1 also won in 2016).
This is the first time AH Comics has had a title nominated for the Joe Shuster Awards, and as a Canadian company we are truly honoured and excited to be recognized by the curators and peers. The award winners will be announced in July, so stay tuned to our News page for updates!
