About The Joe Shuster Awards
Founded in late 2004, the Joe Shuster Awards seek to honor Canadians who create comic books, graphic novels and web comics. All nominees in each category are for work published in the previous calendar year. The 2007 awards will be for work published in 2006. For the purposes of the JOE SHUSTER AWARDS, a Canadian is defined as a native or long-term inhabitant of Canada, or an individual who was born in Canada and now resides elsewhere (possessing either Canadian or dual citizenship).

Outstanding Canadian Comic Book Writer
A Writer is someone who wrote a story that was illustrated by an artist(s). Writers who also drew their own stories are classified as Cartoonists, not writers.
