Comics Industry Person of the Year 2014

Dean Haspiel nominated Seth Kushner as Comics Industry Person of the Year 2014 at The Comics Beat.

–“Seth Kushner. On the heels of successfully funding the Kickstarter for his upcoming graphic novel SCHMUCK, Seth got sick post-MoCCA and soon discovered he had an aggressive form of Leukemia that should have killed him eight-months later. A week ago he walked out of the hospital cancer-free. What cured him is a story for Seth to tell, but what kept him alive (besides family and friends) was his love for comix and TV and movies. Throughout chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant and setbacks and complications, Seth kept developing and writing his creator-owned comix with his collaborators while drawing daily superheroes and Star Wars characters for his son Jackson — from his hospital bed. Seth even drew Matt Wagner’s Grendel for the Baltimore Comicon 2014 Yearbook. And, get this, Seth doesn’t draw. But why let comix and cancer stop him? He may not be the CEO of a comic book company and he may not be the creative “architect” that re-contextualized a superhero’s legacy, but Seth Kushner is a photographer, writer, artist, studio mate, husband, father and, most importantly, he’s a friend. A friend of comix. And, if there’s anything the comic book industry needs to keep it alive and thriving, it’s true blue friends like Seth Kushner, who is a living inspiration for us all.”
