Austin Comic Book Enthusiast Receives Nomination in the ‘Top Personality’ Category.On Monday the nominations for the second annual Geekie Awards were announced, and local Austinite Danni Danger received a “Top Personality” nod for the upcoming 2014 ceremony next month in Los Angeles. A huge comic book fan and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle enthusiast, Danni embodies the comic book Valkyrie, having worked at the popular shop Austin Books and Comics. She has since moved on as a contributor to Weird Girls, where she reviews comics on YouTube, compiles a weekly pull-list, and interviews comic book creators. She brings an insightful and thought-provoking perspective to comics, with an objective to seek out and win new comic book fans. I first met Danni at a comic book convention in Austin, and it was immediately obvious that she thoroughly enjoys what she does, always wearing a smile and maintaining an enthusiastic personality. A true talent and strong voice for both female and male comic readers alike, the nomination is well deserved. The Geekie Awards is a geek inspired award show put on by geeks for those involved in the geek and pop culture related industry, honoring the highest level of quality geek genre content, art, games, and products in the world. The ceremony opens up a gateway for creators and artists to get positive publicity and media attention that is beneficial to all. In 2013, the Geekie Awards accumulated over one billion media impressions and hopes to increase those figures this year. Danni is currently raising money to help fund her trip to California next month. You can contribute to her campaign to help cover travel and hotel expenses by going to her Go Fund Me page. The award ceremony takes place Sunday, August 17 in Hollywood. For more information on the Geekie Awards, you can visit the site at www.thegeekieawards.com
