The Eisner Award nominations were announced a month or so ago, and it is a really strong list this year. I say that both because and despite the fact that Mastering Comics is nominated in the “Best Comics-Related Book” category. It is truly an honor to be nominated, especially in this company. Our thanks go to the selection committee.
That said, we would be extra-honored to actually win that Eisner! If you are involved professionally in the comics world, as a creator, a retailer, a writer, or a publisher, you are eligible to vote in the Eisners, and we humbly ask for your vote. Mastering Comics is in category 27, on the last page of voting. If you don’t have an opinion about a given category, you can skip it, and you can write in candidates in any category.
If you’ve never voted in the Eisners before, you need to register for an account. They’ll ask for your professional credits, to establish your bona fides. If you’ve ever voted before, though, you probably have a login somewhere…
thanks for your support —
Jessica and Matt.
