Hosted by The Convention Collective’s Leonard Sultana, the awards will announce the winners of categories like Best Writer, Best Artist, Best Publisher and more. The ceremony will also give away a selection of top graphic novels to the attendees from the likes of Marvel, IDW and Dark Horse as well as beer, wine and snacks.

Many of the winners will be present at the ceremony to accept their awards while others will be accepting them via zoom or video link.
