The final vote will be public and take place during the upcoming Glasgow Comic Con on Saturday 5th of July, with the ceremony for the awards being held later that evening at the well-kent Glasgow cultural centre the CCA from 7 to 9pm (the ceremony is free to all, but space is limited so you still need to book a ticket). Very nice to see non-comics cultural institutions like Homecoming Scotland and the CCA (again) supporting the medium in addition to indie Black Hearted Press and the Williams Bros (a name I am sure familiar to many of you who enjoy very fine ales – craft beer and comics, great combination in my opinion!). I’ve read some of the works here, some I haven’t had a chance to read yet
