jsa_5th_rgbThis Saturday’s fifth annual Joe Shuster Awards was an absolute blast. Lots of laughs and tears, while it was a shame that not many of the winners were present – there was more than enough memorable moments (I’m looking at you, Andy B!) that elevated it from as typical award show to a great night celebrating comicbooks!
