The 2006 Isotope Award Winner Returns to Scene of Her Triumph
With a quiet little book about a bear, a robot, and a stuffed frog Danica Novgorodoff wowed our judges, dazzled the comics industry, and took home the much-coveted 2006 Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics... and let's face it, she stole our hearts while she was at it.
An artist, designer, painter, author and photographer her work has been popping up like crazy this past year. From cover design on Gene Yang's oh-so popular American Born Chinese and Gipi's gorgeous Garage Band (which just hit comic store shelves this week) to designing fliers for the band Wilco for the Barrymore Theatre in James Sime's hometown of Madison, Wisconsin. Danica's been everywhere!
Not only is our beloved Danica a featured guest for this year APE AFTERMATH, she will also be attending next weekend's Alternative Press Expo with copies of the amazing A Late Freeze in hand, and you won't want to miss seeing her soak up the love when she once again stands upon the world's highest stage and helps us present the fifth annual Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics!
And could we be among the very first to see top-secret pages of her as-of-yet-unannounced original graphic novel The Crossing? Oh, my dear friends, I think we might be!
