BOOKS FROM COCKRUM, COLAN & OTHER COMICS ICONS BENEFIT INKER AWARDS, SCHOLARSHIPS
(New Bedford, MA/USA—January 1, 2018) “February sales from Aardwolf Publishing will directly benefit the advocacy group, the Inkwell Awards” announced Jim Reeber, president of Aardwolf Publishing. The specialty publishing house said it was proud of the work that the Inkwell Awards does and happy to help the non-profit group as it begins its 10th anniversary of advocacy.
“Tithing makes sense to those who comics are practically religion to,” quipped author Clifford Meth, a co-founder of Aardwolf and a Special Ambassador to the Inkwell Awards. “We only recently entered an epoch where comics creators began receiving due recognition and fair compensation for their work. Bob Almond and the Inkwell Awards are a vital part of that paradigm shift; they are solid advocates who are making a difference and I’m proud to be affiliated with their mission and accomplishments.”
Bob added “The Inkwells are extremely fortunate and grateful to have the altruistic financial support of Aardwolf Publishing behind us in February. Cliff and Jim are the real deal and have been fighting the good fight as advocates in our community since I discovered them when I contributed to The Uncanny Dave Cockrum: A Tribute book in 2004 long before I formed my own non-profit. I was honored when Cliff accepted the position of Inkwell special ambassador in 2014 and I am again honored and thrilled by this generous gesture.”
Aardwolf Publishing has published art and stories from some of the industry’s iconic creators including Neal Adams, Jim Steranko, Joe Kubert, Will Eisner, Neil Gaiman, Harlan Ellison, Gene Colan, Marie Severin, Gray Morrow and Dave Cockrum, with new collections slated from Joe Sinnott, Don Perlin and the late Rich Buckler.
