Dean Haspiel Nominated for an Emmy

Dean Haspiel has had a pretty good career in comics and graphic novels. He’s assisted on comics such as “American Flagg!,” “Elektra: Assassin” and Walt Simonson’s run on “Thor”. He co-created “The Verdict” and “Keyhole,” the latter of which introduced his character Billy Dogma. Along with “American Splendor’s” Harvey Pekar, he co-created “The Quitter” and in recent times he’s worked on the Zuda Comics serial “Street Code” and has been editing the Webcomics anthology “Next-Door Neighbor.”

And now, Haspiel has a new claim to fame. Joining the ranks of other comic book writers and past nominees such as Jane Espensen and Jeph Loeb, Haspiel has been nominated to receive an award at this year’s 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony. This tip of the hat was done out of recognition for his work on the main title sequence of the HBO series “Bored to Death.” Haspiel shares the domination with designer/director Tom Barham, compositor, Mark Rubbo, lead animator Marci Ichimura, 3 Arts Entertainment, Fair Harbor Productions and Dakota Pictures.The title sequence in question can be seen here. And tune in to NBC on August 29th to see if Haspiel and his cohorts win.
