2010 Manning Award nominees


Nominees for the 2010 Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award, recognizing some of the finest emerging cartoonists, were announced yesterday. The award is selected by a committee consisting of representatives of the West Coast Comics Club and Comic-Con International. Previous winners include Dave Stevens, Jan Duursema, Steve Rude, Scott McCloud, Art Adams, Eric Shanower, Dan Brereton, Jeff Smith, Gene Ha, Alexander Maleev, Goran Sudzuka, Eric Wight, R. Kikuo Johnson, David Petersen, Cathy Malkasian, and Eleanor Davis, so as you can see, the award definitely has lived up to its billing. This year’s nominees:

Marc Borstel, artist of The Misadventures of Clark and Jefferson (published by APE Entertainment)

Marion Churchland, writer/artist of Beast (published by Image)

Sarah Oleksyk, writer/artist of Ivy (self-published)

Julian Totino Tedesco, artist of Unthinkable (published by BOOM!)

Charles Paul Wilson III, artist of Stuff of Legends (published by Th3rd World) 

  1. How is Jan Duursema a newcomer? She’s been in comics for over 2 decades that I know of. I met her at the 85 comic con. She was great. She and Tom Mandrake were the first people that I commissioned art from. She drew me a Black Canary and Green Arrow and signed some issues of Arion. Mandrake drew me a killer “Catwoman”.
