‘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.

Vaughan transmitted a press release stating that the latest issue of his and Fiona Staples sci-fi comic Saga would not be available for in-app purchase via ComXology or anything else in Apple's App Store for iOS devices, citing "two postage stamp-sized images of gay sex."
