From the press release:

Dan Parsons Nominated
for Two Inkwell Awards!

Long time Star Wars inker and Killing the Grizzly client, Dan Parsons, has been nominated for two prestigious Inkwell Awards in 2010!  The categories in question are “Most Adaptable Inker” and the “S.P.A.M.I.” (for favorite “Small Press and Mainstream-Independent“).

Killing the Grizzly president, Dave Baxter reflects:

I remember Dan when he was hocking his very first independent work at a small Maryland, VA convention.  I bought everything he had there, because his work - even at that crude, early stage - was the best thing displayed at that con.

Dan has produced some amazing books since then, and worked diligently as one of the best inkers at Dark Horse for almost a decade.  If anyone deserves a little notice for his contribution to the comics he’s worked on, after all this time, it’s Dan Parsons.

Anyone who’d like to vote for Dan, can do so right here.
