Congratulations to DC Entertainment Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, who were announced yesterday as COMIC BEAT’S Team of the Year. The Beat’s Person of the Year award was inaugurated last year to celebrate industry icons “who move the needle and shake things up or exemplify a level of excellence that others can aspire to.” This year, DiDio and Lee share the honor with “webcartoonist, author, historian, performance artist” Kate Beaton, who was named Person of the Year.
In a statement, DiDio and Lee had this to say about the award:
“In 2011, we took a major risk because we felt that’s what the industry needed. It’s been so rewarding to see the response both from the fans and from the industry pundits. Given Comic Beat¹s longtime standing in the industry, we’re honored by this recognition. But the story’s not over, and we’ve got another big year ahead of us.”
