Like Shel, another Detroit native, the awards are most concerned with the fan perspective, giving the fans unprecedented say in the nomination and voting process.
The Shel Dorf awards proudly celebrate the best of our industries present while honoring the unique place that Detroit has in comic fandom’s past.” – Shel Dorf Award Website Jeff, besides being an amazing color artist, is also one of the greatest guys you will meet in the business.
