Blue Moon Comics' Kragor the Savage Special Edition #1 made it through a close first round of 64 to Round 2's field of 32 in the March Madness-styled People's Choice Awards for H.E.R.O.I.C. Awards' inaugural contest. "With cover art and a 1-page "Snazzy Snak Cakes" faux ad by Best Cover Nominee JW Erwin, short Kragor stories featuring art by Louis Sollune, Ian Groff, David Johnson Jr., Best Line Art Nominee Kent Clark, and Marcello Rosmini, it's definitely one of the most all-around gorgeous books Blue Moon Comics has ever produced," beams writer/publisher Lloyd Smith. "We are thrilled that Kragor the Savage Special Edition #1 has made it through to Round 2 in a field loaded with so many distinguished publications and would like to ask our fans to please continue to support us in this contest. It's a very close contest with less than a 1% margin between competitors, so please take the time to vote for us every day of this round." Round 2 votes can be cast at: HEROIC Awards

Blue Moon Comics also has been nominated four times in several of the professionally juried H.E.R.O.I.C.

Huge thanks to Rick Duree, his team, and his sponsors."
