TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3481:
We're Nominated for 'Comic Blogger of the Year'!
Yesterday I learned that I am up for a Shel Dorf Award as 'Comic Blogger of the Year'. What an honor!
This is especially cool because, if it weren't for Shel Dorf and his hard work in co-founding the San Diego Comic-Con, I don't know that I'd even be blogging on comics today.
You see, I worked my way through college buying and selling comics starting at the 1972 San Diego Comic-Con at the El Cortez Hotel. Those were the days -- I had hair - long hair! Yeah, that's me in the picture from 1973 shown above at the top 2nd right of this blog post!
For the next 40 some years, I collected comics (especially everything related to the Fantastic Four), bought and sold comics, went to Comic-Con International as often as I could, (21 straight since 1991 when it moved to the San Diego Convention Center!), and even bought the seldom seen poster for the original (never released) Fantastic Four movie by Roger Corman. It hangs proudly on my home office wall.
Today, I blog about comics, the industry, and pop-culture. I especially enjoy giving voice to small press and independent artists and paying tribute to comic book legends that we recently lost like Gene Colan, John Buscema, Jack Kirby, and John P. "Jon" D'Agostino Sr, among others.
If you enjoy my blog, please cast your vote here at the Shel Dorf Awards - Vote Now! link. The category is titled 'Comic Blogger of the Year', and the entry name is 'Michael Hamersky On Comics'. It's the fourth category from the bottom of the page.
You will be asked to verify your vote via email. You can only vote once, so I appreciate your support. While you are there... Please check the other categories for other worthy nominees.
The Shel Dorf Awards will be handed out at the 2nd Annual Detroit Fanfare on September 24th. I'll be sure to announce the winners here in this blog!
For those of you coming here to my Blog for the first time, because of the announcment... Here are links to the most recent blog posts in categories that I've set up:
Comic Book Artists, Comic Book Writers, Comic Book History, Comic Book Movies, Other Movie Genres, Comic Books - New (Reviews), Comic Cons, Other Cons, eBay info, Other Non-Comics Works, and TV Shows! I've also blogged a series of 'Spotlight On...' posts that 'spotlight' those that contribute to the comics / pop culture worlds but don't necessarily work as creators. Those posts can be found in a special photo album at my Facebook fan page, with a link to those persons being 'spotlighted' in a blog of their own.
Thanks again for taking the time to read the above, and taking the time to vote for me in the 'Comic Blogger of the Year' category at The Shel Dorf Awards - Vote Now! link.
