The winners for the 2017 Diamond Comic Distribution Gem Awards have been announced! This year, Skybound took home two of the top prizes! The Diamond Gem Awards are recognized within the comic book industry as the pinnacle of sales achievement for publishers, vendors, industry executives, and creators. Each year, winners are selected by comic book specialty retailers to recognize the efforts of those who create the comics, graphic novels and pop-culture products that have been instrumental in helping the industry grow over the past year.
This year, a certain little Texas vampire tale took home “Best New Comic Book Series.” That’s right, our very own REDNECK from Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, Dee Cunniffe & Joe Sabino took home the coveted gem award. The other big Skybound winner this year was THE WALKING DEAD: HERE’S NEGAN taking home the award for “Best Reprint TP or HC of the Year.” Congrats to Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn & Dave Stewart!
