The 2010 Eisner Nominations have arrived!
Comics Beat reports that the 2010 Eisner Nominations have been released. Here are your candidates for Best Digital Comic:
- Abominable Charles Christopher, by Karl Kerschl, www.abominable.cc (reviewed here)
- Bayou, by Jeremy Love, http://zudacomics.com/bayou
- The Guns of Shadow Valley, by David Wachter and James Andrew Clark, www.gunsofshadowvalley.com
- Power Out, by Nathan Schreiber, www.act-i-vate.com/67.comic
- Sin Titulo, by Cameron Stewart, www.sintitulocomic.com (reviewed here)
Based on the strength of the two nominees I’m familiar with (plus the positive word-of-mouth I’ve heard about Bayou), I’d say that this is a fairly strong list this time around. Last year, I wrote a two–part overview of the 2009 Eisner nominees. I plan on doing the same thing next month. So watch this space for my take on the nominees, plus my predictions on the winners.
Also representing webcomics: Josh Neufeld’s A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge (reviewed here) — which began its life as a webcomic and went on to garner critical acclaim from Wired, Rolling Stone, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today, among others — gets a nomination for “Best Graphic Album – Reprint.”
EDIT: Lauren Davis also has her own take on the Eisner nominees up at her site. Her blog, Storming the Tower, has always been great webcomics-related reading, so check it out when you can. She’s much happier about the 2010 nominees than the 2009 version (like I am). She does wonder, though, whether a long relationship in print comics impacts chances of winning.
