Dean Haspiel talks about Seth Kushner at The Harvey Awards

Heidi MacDonald (at The Comics Beat) reports about Dean Haspiel’s speech regarding Seth Kushner at The Harvey Awards during Baltimore Comic-con 2015:

“Dean Haspiel is up next and no one will take over under on him taking off his shirt. “There’s a reason I’m wearing a button up shirt,” he says to woots from the crowd. HE teases that he would have done an act to The Time but instead delivers a speech about the late Seth Kushner “Who was a great photographer and a studio mate of ours. He is not alive to see his first graphic novel come out.” Dino brings it all around to the family of the Baltimore Comic Con, and how last year a charity auction was held, and Marc Nathan gave a check to Kushner’s family. “That’s what I wanted to say, ‘says dino. “you’ll see me naked later whatever, but to me Baltimore Comic Con is family and a room full of beautiful dreamers. Plus my thunder was stolen by Bloodshot and his pecs. ””

Hannah Means-Shannon (at Bleeding Cool) wrote about my presentation at the Harvey Awards at Baltimore Comic-con 2015:

“Dean Haspiel spoke about his studio mate Seth Kushner, who passed away this year, and was a photographer who created many portraits of the creators present. Kushner’s first graphic novel, Schmuck, has now been released posthumously. He thanked Baltimore Comic Con for their charity auction, held last year, which presented Seth Kushner with a check for $10,000 to help with his medical expenses. “That’s what Baltimore Comics is to me”, Haspiel said, “family”.”
