Dakota McFadzean Wins A Shuster

At the Joe Shuster Awards ceremony in Montreal today, local cartoonist Dakota McFadzean won The Gene Day Award for Self-Publishers for his comic Ghost Rabbit.

In addition to his self publishing and other comics-related work, Dakota has been a regular contributor to prairie dog. He’s done like 20 or something covers over the years — all of which rank among my Top 6 prairie dog covers of all time (don’t do the math) — countless interior illos and he’s recently been doing a regular comic in the back pages.

I’m a huge fan of his work and it’s been a serious honour to have him illustrate some of the pieces I’ve written.

So, I can’t say I’m surprised he won this and I suspect there are more and bigger honours coming.

Congratulations, Dakota.
