Eisner Awards: My friends are AWESOME
The 2012 Eisner Award nominations are chock full of great books by great people, including lots of friends—including:
- Best Publication for Kids (ages 8-12): The Ferret’s a Foot by Colleen AF Venable and Stephanie Yue (omigosh this series is so cute and funny why aren’t there cuddly toys and an animated series yet??)
- Best Digital Comic: Outfoxed, by Dylan Meconis (omigosh this comic is so amazing and so is Dylan and look at this nifty gift art from her)
- Best Archival Collection/Project – Strips: Tarpé Mills’s Miss Fury Sensational Sundays, ed. by Trina Robbins (Omigosh Trina is a legend, and I’m thrilled to get to work with her on several books for kids)
Publishing professionals, comic book store retailers, and creative artists are eligible to cast votes in the many different categories.
Good luck to Trina, Stephanie, Colleen, and Dylan! I hope some of their coolness rubs off on me!
