The joys of awards

The joys of awards 1200 375 Paul Levitz

I’ve been very lucky in my life to have received some lovely recognition for my work, none more so than being inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame. The HOF is a collection of some of the great pioneers and master crafts people of comics and cartooning, and it’s an honor to be among them. It’s not a perfect selection system, and over the 30 or so years it’s been around, many worthy and talented folks have been inducted and a few obvious candidates haven’t made it in yet (Max Gaines leaps to mind).

It’s on the shelf in my mind with my 1972 and 1973 Best Fanzine Comic Art Awards, the Inkpot, the Bob Campbell Humanitarian Award, the DicK Giordano Humanitarian Award, the Comics Pro Industry Appreciation Award, and the several awards (including an Eisner) that 75 YEARS OF DC COMICS: THE ART OF MODERN MYTH-MKING Scored.

To all involved in these, thank you…and to all of you who allowed me to do the work that qualified, thank you as well.
