New Jersey’s premier comic book convention the Hawthorne High School Comic Convention is back on May 14th for it’s sixth show. Join the students of the Cartooning and the Art Clubs as we present New Jersey’s premier comic book art gathering.
There will be appearances by comic book creators and dealers. Art lessons will be presented all day by the comic professionals and we will have our incredible auction of original comic art, graphic novels, rare comics and other great items. The convention is held to celebrate the great American art form, comics, and to raise funds for our high school’s talented art department.

For the third successive year the Inkwell Awards posts their ballot for voting online on the website on August 15 until one month later on September 15. Anyone can vote whether they be a fan or an industry professional. As previously reported, the 2010 Nomination Committee made up of various respected industry professionals, was chosen last fall/winter and they voted on nominees for the ballot this past spring.
Previously the ballot had been posted during the spring and then the summer, respectively, but this year, in order to coordinate the voting period to precede the live awards ceremony that takes place in October, they had to adjust their schedule. The ceremony will be sponsored by Wizard Entertainment and take place at Wizard World: New England (Boston) at the Hynes Convention Center on the weekend of October 15-17th.
It will be emcee’d by Inkwell Awards founder Bob Almond and the organization’s Hall of Fame namesake, Joltin’ Joe Sinnott, will preside as keynote speaker, and a question and answer session will take place with the award winners. Other Inkwell Awards committee members and ambassadors will be in attendance and spokesperson Ms. Inkwell, as played by model Chrissy Cutler, will also be appearing at the event.
