I like the fact that there is an award for storytelling, although since it comes from a famous comic art school it’s probably exclusive to comics. Still, comics get ignored unless they can make a live-action movie out of it so what do I care? Anyway, the Joe Kubert School Of Cartoon And Graphic Art has awarded their first storytelling award to Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai. While it’s usually an honor to win an award that isn’t a Raspberries type award, it’s a bigger honor to be the first recipient. So congratulations to Mr. Sakai.
