Eisner Award Nominee

Stanley’s Ghost, our first comic featuring Stanley, Natasha, Chester, Baby Fang, Bandit and Billy is nominated for an Eisner Award.  The Eisner Awards are like the Academy Awards, but for comic books.  It’s a huge honor even to be nominated.  So to hear that Stanley’s Ghost is nominated for Best Single Issue, I was extremely happy!  Speechless (if you can believe that…lol).  It’s such a good feeling to see your characters grow up from an idea in your head to being nominated in a comic book.

However, I didn’t create this comic alone.  Yes, I created the characters and backgrounds, but the comic was a team effort.  And I’d like to thank each and every one of them.

Co-writer/Story: Paul Storrie
Artist: Dave Alvarez
Created/Co-writer/Story/Colorist: Jeff Balke (me)
Letterer: Janice Chiang

I also want to give a HUGE shout out too Sandy King and Sean at Storm King Productions for the opportunity to create this book through them.  Without you guys, this book wouldn’t see the light of day.  THANK YOU guys!  THANK YOU team!!!  Now let’s GET THAT WIN 😉
