Karl the Viking

Not much of a post today as we were in party mode last night. However, I would like to mention that one of the books I was involved in last year is apparently up for an award. Het Stripschap [Google translation] is a comics' organisation in Holland who run the biggest Dutch convention of the year, De Stripdagen, which this year is to be held on 26 and 27 September at the Euretco Expo Center in Houten. The convention regularly receives 10,000 visitors and each year votes on an award in various categories.

This year's nominations include Storm 24: De Bronnen van Marduk (by Martin Lodewijk, Romano Molenaar & Jorg de Vos, based on the characters originally drawn by Don Lawrence) in the Dutch Adventure and Entertainmnet category and the Karl the Viking box set in the category for Excellence in Production.

Long-time readers will know that a lot of sweat and swearing went into putting Karl the Viking together before it finally appeared last October. So congratulations to Ron van Bavel, Meerten Welleman and all at DI Studios whose hard work is recognised in the nomination.
