Eisner awards and other SDCC notes

Robot 6 liveblogged the Eisners, and congratulations are due to their parent site, CBR, on winning the award for best comics journalism. (I write a weekly column for Robot 6, although I’m sure that had nothing to do with it!) Dororo took the award for Best U.S. Edition of International Material (Japan), and it was the only manga to win, although several others were nominated. Heidi has the full list of nominees and winners at The Beat. Gia puts in her two cents at Anime Vice.

UPDATE: An alert commenter points out that a short OEL manga, “Murder He Wrote,” by Ian Boothby, Nina Matsumoto, and Andrew Pepoy, in The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror #14, took the award for best short story.

Lori Henderson shows off her swag and reports on Day 2 of SDCC, and Gia looks forward to the day ahead. Apparently there is big news coming at the Dark Horse panel.

  1. “Murder He Wrote” also won. It’s drawn in manga style, by a Japanese-Canadian artist, parodying a manga graphic novel. Does it not count because it’s OEL?

  2. No, I just didn’t realize it was manga style. I’ll add it in. Thanks!
