Elysium Online wins 4 Comicdom Awards (including Best Comic)

Last night, at the awards show of Comicdom Con Athens, the biggest Greek convention (and I'm pretty sure one of the biggest East European ones) my latest graphic novel, Elysium Online won every major category!
Best Artist, Best Writer, Best Self-publication and the grand prize of Best Comic!

So yeah... I'm ecstatic!
I'll remind you that this is a crowd-funded book, that would simply not exist if people had not decided to bet on it based on nothing more than a few pages and maybe because they liked my previous work. I will never be able to thank enough all of you who helped this happen.

What's written under the Best Comic award? A secret message by star artist (and very good friend), Michel Dialynas, who presented it to me. It's washable ink but no way I'm wiping it away :) 

And I learned afterwards that another good friend, Tind, constructed the actual awards.
And he never said a word! The bastard :P

At the closing party with the amazing Dimitrios Kasdaglis who drew part of the book.

At the Giganto booth with my best buddy, Tassos Papaioannou. Wonderful person, powerful artist, spectacular graphic designer of Elysium Online, publisher of my latest book Melody, brother.

If you haven't read Elysium Online you might want to correct that.
You can order the book here.

Thanks again!
