Asheville book editor Chris Sparks wins Humanitarian Award
Our very own Chris Sparks recently won the Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award for his work with the Team Cul de Sac project to fight Parkinson’s.
“AT FRIDAY NIGHT’S 25th annual Eisner Awards, Chris Sparks has won the Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award, it was announced during the ceremony hosted by San Diego Comic-Con.
Sparks launched the TeamCul de Sac project — which raises money to fight Parkinson’s research — after learning that Arlington-based “Cul de Sac” creator Richard Thompson, a longtime Post contributor, had the disease.
“I am very honored and proud of Team Cul de Sac,” Sparks tells Comic Riffs minutes after winning the award. “This just shows how we can pull together and make a difference, one cartoon at a time.”
