Awesome Con LogoITEM! While it may not be an award, it’s still a pretty nice spotlight – the folks over at Bleeding Cool did a nice feature article on Ben Penrod, founder of Awesome Con, and friend of the Visionary crew since forever! Awesome, of course, has grown exponentially in its main show in DC, but also sponsors some of our local shows we support, like Southern Maryland Comic-Con and Annapolis Comic-Con. Go read it now!

We had an utterly amazing time at the San Diego Con this past week, exhausting but lots of fun!

ITEM! Speaking of SDCC and awards – One of our favorite authors, New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry, won a coveted Inkpot Award and was a Guest of Honor at the show! Jonathan wrote our first Deadlands novel, Ghostwalkers, and stopped by the Visionary booth during the show! It was a well-deserved win for an awesome writer and great guy!

 

Presenting the ‘Ringo Awards

Our proudly claimed home convention has always been the Baltimore Comic-Con, and they announced earlier this year a brand new award for the comic industry – the ‘Ringo Award. Named after the nickname for Mike Weiringo, an amazingly talented artist who passed away a few years ago, the new awards seek to celebrate the comic arts and the best of content and creators! The list of this inaugural year’s nominees has been released, and final voting is taking place now! Awards will be presented at the September Baltimore Con. Go VOTE for your favorites!
