Introduced in 1992, the annual award aims to encourage the development of new talent aged 35 or younger. It comes with a $10,000 grant. Chin said he will use the money for the “publication and research for future books”.

Wizard World – Gareb’s Blog

Gareb has a blog.

“This new edition might seem a little out of place, but in addition to growing up in the comics biz, I also grew up liking chocolate chip cookies.
