2014 Eisner Award Nominees Announced: Image Leads, Strong Showings From Dark Horse And Vertigo

2014 Eisner Award nominees

San Diego Comic-Con International 2014 is looming just over the horizon, and that means that it's almost time for the annual Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. Today, the nominees were announced, and Image Comics led the pack with 20 nominations across all categories, including four out of five of the nominations for Best Continuing Series, with the remaining spot going to Matt Fraction and David Aja's Hawkeye at Marvel.

Also interesting to note: While there were several nominations for Vertigo titles like Trillium and The Wake, DC's "New 52" line of superhero titles was almost completely shut out, with their only nod coming from Scott Snyder's nomination for Best Writer. Check below for the whole list.

‘Building Stories,’ ‘Saga’ Dominate 2013 Eisner Awards [SDCC 2013]

Untitled-1

Industry professionals new and old gathered last night for the 2013 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards at Comic-Con International in San Diego, and it proved to be a big night for Chris Ware, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. Ware's Building Stories took home four awards, including Best Writer/Artist and Best Publication Design, while Vaughan and Staples' Saga swept its three categories: Best Continuing Series, Best New Series and Best Writer. Among the highlights of the evening was several award recipients and presenters using their time on stage to offer a few kind words in remembrance of Kim Thompson, the legendary Fantagraphics co-publisher who passed away last month.

And while we regretfully inform you that ComicsAlliance was not among the evening's winners, we once again thank the judges for considering us.

You can see a complete list of nominees and winners below.

The 2007 Eisner Award Nominees were announced yesterday, and that means that everyone connected with comics will do one of three things:

  1. Get excited about this listing of some of the great comics released in 2006
  2. Complain that they don't see their favorite comic on the list
  3. Ignore the announcement and/or generally be oblivious about the whole thing

Now, sadly, the third option is probably the most common reaction. But since that reaction is pretty silent, it's the complainers that get the most airtime. And so, a mere five years after I se
