Del Connell and the late Bob Haney have been named as the recipients of this year's Bill Finger Awards.
Connell, a prolific writer for many decades, will be presented with the accolade during the Eisner Awards ceremony at Comic-Con International this summer.
Starting out at Disney Studios, Connell's credits include the classic animations Alice In Wonderland and The Three Caballeros. He also penned the official Mickey Mouse comic for more than 20 years and served as editor-in-chief at Western Publishing.
Haney, who passed away in 2004, was given a posthumous honour. The acclaimed DC scribe is best known as co-creator of the Doom Patrol and Metamorpho, as well as for his work on The Brave And The Bold, Teen Titans and Aquaman.
The Bill Finger Awards are named after the late American comic writer often referred to as the uncredited co-creator of Batman. The prize is handed out annually, honouring one living writer and one deceased who have not been sufficiently recognised for their work.
This year's ceremony takes place on July 22 at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
