Yesterday, Friday the 13th proved to be a very lucky day for former Memphian and MSCA member Mike Norton!
Mike won an Eisner award for his webcomic “Battlepug” at the 24th annual Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. The “Eisners” (considered to be the Oscars of the comic biz and named after comics legend Will Eisner) were held last night at the Indigo Ballroom in the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel, as part of the annual San Diego Comic-Con.
Mike is from Jackson, TN and went to college at the University of Memphis. He was a member of the MSCA while working here in Memphis in advertising and comics (like “The Waiting Place“) before moving to Chicago, IL to become the art director for Devil’s Due Publishing in 2001.
