Eisners are in!
It looks like Canadians, and Transmission-X, are on an unbeatable roll at awards time. The Montreal-based Karl Kerschl, creator of Abominable Charles Christopher, took home this year’s award for Best Digital Comic at the Eisner Awards. This comes after his pal, Cameron Stewart of Batman & Robin fame, took home the award last year for Sin Titulo. You know it’s only a matter of time before Salgood Sam and Ramon Perez get their own turns at the stand, too.
This was Mr. Kerschl’s second Best Digital Comic nomination.
Congratulations to Mr. Kerschl! That trophy looks like it’s a fine thing to display and/or to bludgeon any home invaders.
Congratulations to Shannon Wheeler!
I have a weird feeling that being accidentally left off the Eisner ballot may have been the best thing to happen to him. His I Thought You’d Be Funnier garnered more votes than the eclectic field of nominees, including notable webcomic creator Dave Kellett (Literature: Unsuccessfully Competing Against TV Since 1953).
