San Diego publisher Magma Comix is excited to share that The Principles of Necromancy artist, Eamon Winkle, has been nominated for the Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award!Winkle is a California-based comic book artist and illustrator.

The Russ Manning Award is presented to an artist early in their career that “shows a superior knowledge and ability in the art of creating comics.” It was named after Russ Manning, creator of Magnus, Robot Fighter and illustrator of Star Wars and Tarzan comic strips. The winner will be announced at the annual Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards ceremony at San Diego Comic-Con International 2024 on Friday, July 26.

I couldn't have gotten to this point in my artistic journey without all the people who have done so much to encourage me along the way. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and letting me create and share my artwork with you all.”

“We are thrilled to see Eamon receive this recognition, which he earned through dedication to both his craft and his team,” said Magma Comix President and Publisher, Denton J.
