The Eisner Awards are similar to the Oscars for the Comic Book Industry. Nominations are announced every spring and the winners are presented during Comic Con in San Diego. Notable winners this year include;
Mike Mignola-- who must have a second house to hold his Eisners.
American Vampire by Scott Snyder and Stephen King-- a book I really enjoyed when I read it, so well deserved.
Best Digital Comic was ABOMINABLE CHARLES CHRISTOPHER by Karl Kerschl -- you can check it out at www.abominable.cc
Best Graphic Album Reprint went to WEDNESDAY COMICS as edited by the amazing Mark Chiarello-- this was overlooked completely when it was first released, one of the real crimes of the Eisners-- so I'm glad it got it for the reprint. A great book with innovative storytelling.
Best REPRINT edition went to IDW's ROCKETEER collection which is the first book in a series which will reprint the original art for certain series in a full size collection. These are expensive but worth it.
Another Great year, I'll be at San Diego next year.
