Honorees Named For 2016 Bill Finger Award
Since 2005, the Eisner Awards have handed out the Bill Finger Award For Excellence In Comic Book Writing. Named for the often unsung co-creator of Batman, it functions as something of a lifetime achievement award for writers, honoring the contributions of creators like Jerry Siegel, Otto Binder, Steve Gerber, Bill Mantlo, Harvey Kurtzman, and more. And this year, when the awards are presented in San Diego for Comic-Con International, they'll be going to two of the the true greats of the Silver and Bronze Ages. As announced today, the Bill Finger Award recipients for 2016 are Elliot S. Maggin and Richard E. Hughes.
