The 2014 Eisner Awards for Best Digital/Webcomic Comics are announced and… oh, *#%@!!! It’s The Oatmeal

So the 2014 Eisner noms were announced today. My new employer, Robot 6, did not make it into the Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism category this year (though parent company Comic Book Resources did). Hopefully my coverage of webcomics will be enough to tip the scale next time the awards are considered.

Ehhh? EEHHHHHH?

Anyway, you know what you’re here for. What are the nominees for Best Online Comic this year, El Santo? Well, glad you asked. First of all, it’s now called “Best Digital/Webcomic.” Make up your mind, Eisners! Second, the awards are a pretty dang eclectic mix… and there’s only one here that I recognize.

Incidentally, the Sugarshock-o-Meter is starting to gain sentience, question its existence and purpose in life. Stay Calm and carry on, Sugarshock-o-Meter!

In other news, The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks is up form Best Publication for Kids (ages 8-12) and Best Humor Publication.

About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. Wow… really don’t like the website format for Failing Sky.

    • The irony there is that the format is probably part of what earned it a nomination.

      Though it would be better if each page loaded centered on the spot you were meant to begin looking at, rather than top and center of the webpage.

  2. The Oatmeal hasn’t even done that much in the past year, has it?

  3. Whisky Tango Foxtrot

    Superhero Girl hasn’t updated in almost two years. How is it up for anything?

    • Its awards are for the collected print edition, which means that it would have likely been ignored had it not been printed on the pressed pulp of deceased vegetation.
