Attention enjoyers of the panel and word bubble – the 2009 Eisner Award Nominations have just been released.
What are the Eisner Awards? From the source:
The Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards are considered the “Oscars” of the comic book industry. They are handed out each year in a gala ceremony at Comic-Con International: San Diego, the largest and oldest comics convention in the United States.
Who’s nominated this year?
For the “Best Publication for Teens” category, I’ll be pulling for Rapunzel’s Revenge – a title that would have been a Best New Book, if I had just mustered up the vim to have reviewed it. Yep, I’m chalking that oversight up to low levels of vim.
