Isotope Award accepting minicomics entries

Retailer and "Comic Pimp" James Sime announced today that submissions for the Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics will be accepted until midnight March 15. Previous winners were Rob Osborne (1000 Steps to World Domination) and Josh Cotter (Skyscrapers of the Midwest).

"Mini-comics are the basement tapes of the comic industry," Sime said in a press release. "And just like basement tapes, this is where the raw creative spark is at it's brightest. Mini-comics represent the bleeding edge of comics innovation and evolution and this where the industry's superstars of tomorrow are perfecting their riffs and chops today. We want to shine the spotlight on the work these future superstars are making... that's what the Isotope Award is all about!"

Creators must send five copies of their minicomic sent to Isotope's Special Projects Director Kirsten Baldock at the Isotope address (1653 Noriega St., San Francisco, CA 94122) before the March 15 deadline. The award will be presented at the Isotope in conjunction with the Alternative Press Expo.
