The Livonia-based rap duo Twiztid is throwing down with some of the comic book industry's major players this month.
The group's series "Haunted High-On's" has been nominated for three of the comic book industry's Ringo Awards -- Best Humor Comic, Best Artist or Penciller (Marianna Pescosta) and Best Colorist (Alessandro de Fornasari). They'll be competing in those categories against releases by Marvel and D.C., among others.
Winners of the fourth annual Ringo Awards -- named after the late comic book artist Mike Wieringo -- will be announced Oct. 24 during the virtual Baltimore Comic Con. Voting is public and can be found at ringoawards.com.
In a statement, Twiztid's Jamie Madrox (aka James Spaniolo) said, "When I heard we were nominated...I was excited. It was surreal. Our little comic book series making big waves is a reasonable possibility, but to be acknowledged among the other creative minds in the field is an honor for sure."
"Haunted High On's" is published and distributed by Michigan-based Source Point Press. More details via twiztid.com and sourcepointpress.com.
