It was just last week that Comic-Con International announced the 2018 Eisner Award nominees, but Image Comics is already devaluing them by offering digital copies of all 18 of their nominated series on ComiXology.

The word on the street is that we are about to get a brand-new, very well-funded awards show for San Diego Comic Con.

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism

When it comes to comics journalism, there are plenty of options available to the reader in this day and age. Websites dominate in this fast-paced new world, publishing articles and exclusive interviews with creators and publishers alike in mere minutes. Nowadays people are less likely to have meltdowns over social media in fear of making […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Publication Design

Looking at my own graphic novel library, some books definitely stand out because of the quality of their design. Size doesn't matter, despite what your girlfriend tells you, for you can produce the biggest Artist's Edition in the world, but if the design is unattractive, then no one wants to display it in their library […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015- Best Lettering

If you don't even realize you're reading the word balloons or sound effects in a comic, then the letterer is doing a fantastic job leading you throughout the story by an invisible hand. The only time you really notice bad lettering is if it doesn't fit inside the balloon properly, the font is something similar […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Cover Artist

For a few years, I covered (pun intended) my favorite comic book covers each week for Bleeding Cool. I enjoyed browsing the new release section at my local shop because it was a bombardment of different colors, shapes, and stylings to the eyes, making me "Ooooh!" and "Ahhhhh!" in delight. In the industry, sometimes the […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Penciller/Inker

I recently got back into sketching after an extremely long hiatus, and it feels good creating something from nothing. Am I any good? Hardly, but I'm not looking to get paid to do it for a living. It's very gratifying to sketch, and takes some practice to get certain shapes and figures to form. I […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Writer/Artist

It's hard being the best at something. Some people struggle for years to be the best artist or writer, putting in countless hours of work for little or no results. But to be the best at writing and illustration? It's a balancing act making sure one doesn't outshine the other, while keeping things entertaining for […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Writer

Today's category is for Best Writer, one of the major categories of the Eisners. Stories and series start with an idea, and a talented writer is capable of taking something simple and running with it, expanding upon it and making it something earth-shattering and memorable. It's not just the story that's important, it's the collaboration […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Graphic Album – Reprint

If I'm really a fan of something, I have no problem buying it twice (or "double-dipping"). This rarely happens nowadays, but take The Umbrella Academy for instance: I bought all the issues when they first came out, then the trades and hardcovers, then eventually the deluxe edition because how could I not?! Sometime we hold […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Graphic Album-New

When I think about the Best Graphic Album-New category, I equate it to the Academy Award for Best Picture. All the nominees have been praised for the past year for being the best that comics has to offer, and being nominated for several awards from multiple organizations simply validates the power they hold over the […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Digital/Web Comic

The bound & published medium isn't for everyone, for sometimes it can be constricting for such massive, imaginative ideas when it comes to storytelling. Not only that, but to offer a story online makes it accessible to virtually everyone with a computer or smartphone with an internet connection. Just make sure it's on a consistent […]
