“I look at my students and see the eight-year-old me sitting on the floor surrounded by comic books; we’re all just trying to prove we can make a career out of our passion,” said Sparacio. “My role is to honor that inner comic book fan and encourage them to believe in their talent and take risks. You never know what will transpire after a few brush strokes and a lot of bravery.”

Eight winners were selected by Sparacio and his partner and publisher, James Kuhoric. Four winners were chosen as variant artists for four issues of “Bombshell and TommTomm,” while the remaining four were selected for four issues of “Witch Hammer.” Sparacio’s company, American Mythology Productions, designed and published both series.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have a successful career in the world of comics, and I’m committed to giving back to my students in a meaningful way,” said Sparacio. “The comic cover competition is a way for me to not only support and mentor my students, but also to give them a platform to shine and take their first step toward a career in the industry.”
