Blackjack GLYPH NOM! Greetings Dieselfunkateers! I’m proud to announce that Blackjack, aka Arron Day, has been nominated for a prestigious GLYPH AWARD in the category of Best Male Character. Held every year just before the famous EAST COAST AGE OF BLACK COMICS, we are honored to be held in amazing company. Congrats to all of the Nominees.
I will state publicly for the record, Blackjack, created by Alex Simmons, is a character that has a powerful legacy. I was grateful when Alex allowed me to add my visual take on Blackjack and it has made all of the difference. As a result, I am very very proud of our work on the graphic novel, Blackjack: There Came A Dark Hunter. Brothers already have enough challenges through their real lives. We owe it to ourselves to create multi-dimensional characters that can be both thoughtful and heroic if need be. A special thanks and CONGRATS to ALEXANDER SIMMONS for creating such a lasting character. I’m already at work on the next Blackjack graphic novel my friend.
