The 2010 Eisner Award nominees have been announced, and while there are a great many people on that list that deserve high fives, we can't help but selfishly fast forward to the Best Comics-Related Journalism/Periodical category where -- wait, what? ComicsAlliance has been nominated for an Eisner, alongside such venerable sources as The Comics Journal, The Comics Reporter, Alter Ego, Comics Comics.

I'm hugely grateful and flattered for the nomination -- I know how much work has gone into the site, not just personally but by my entire team, and I'd be totally remiss if I didn't recognize that none of this would have been possible without them. I owe a great debt of thanks to my Assistant Editor, Caleb Goellner, my esteemed Senior Writer Chris Sims, not to mention Josh Wigler, David Uzumeri, David Brothers, Chris Murphy, Douglas Wolk, Nick Nadel, Jason Michelitch, Graeme McMillan, Jon Gutierrez, Brendan McGuirk, Alice Parker, and John Parker.

And thanks as well to all our readers for their support -- you're why we do it, and we're working all the time to become a better site for you. Haters, meanwhile, may refer to the GIF after the jump.
