Scott Snyder and Jonathan Hickman received Inkpot Awards Sunday at San Diego Comic-Con before their creator spotlight panels.
Inkpot Awards are given out every year at San Diego Comic-Con to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to comics, sci-fi, fantasy, TV, film, animation, and fandom.
Snyder and Hickman have been two of the most prominent voices in superhero fiction in recent years, with the former at DC Comics and the latter at Marvel Comics.
From 2009 to 2015, Hickman put together a 200-some issue run that spanned multiple titles and ultimate destroyed the Marvel Universe (before putting it back together). He has also had extensive critical and sales success on creator-owned projects such as East of West and The Black Monday Murders.
