Comics News: MOLLY DANGER's Juan Castro Gets Inkwell Nod

For Immediate release

The talented inker nominated for the 2014 Inkwell awards

Pittsburgh P.A.- Molly Danger inker Juan Castro has been nominated in three categories for the 2014 Inkwell Awards.  Castro has been nominated for Most Adaptable inker, Props Award (Inker deserving of more attention) and the S.P.A.M.I. Award (Favorite Small Press And Mainstream-Independent 2013 interior cover-dated American comic book ink work over another pencil artist, Non-Marvel or DC work).
 While Castro is a relative newcomer to the comics’ game, he was Jamal Igle’s first choice to ink Molly Danger: Book one.  The talented young inker’s credits include G.I. Joe for IDW and Team 7 for D.C.Comics.

 The Inkwell Awards, a non-profit organization devoted to educating and promoting the art of inking, invites the public to vote for the industries best of the past year.
“We’re so excited for this event, where everyone’s hard work will pay off and the best of the best ink artists and their work will be recognized,” said Bob Almond, founder and director of The Inkwell Awards (AKA “The Inkwells”). “Inkers have their own fans and followers, and often go unsung or glossed over in traditional awards events. Ours caters specifically to ink artists and allows several to be recognized and appreciated in various categories.”

The official public ballot will be available on the Inkwell Awards’ homepage from April 15 through April 30. Voting is open to everyone, whether fans or professional peers. The winners will be announced at the live awards ceremony at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC June 20-22 on Saturday the 21st at 12:30pm.
