Justin Hall the 2007 winner and editor of NO STRAIGHT LINES: Four Decades of Queer Comics said, “The QPG was tremendously important to me as a comics creator. Besides giving me money to help print my book, it gave me exposure, access to a supportive and dynamic community, and a sense of confidence in my work. Prism is the last organization dedicated to providing grants to independent, self-published comics, and so this is a very special award to strive for.”
