Last week was the San Diego Comic Con where they held the 2018 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. So this week, Jon and I will be doing a review of the nominees and winners of some of the categories from the:
2018 Eisner Awards
Or as I like to call the podcast:
2 Ignorant Clods Butcher Names and Talk About Comics They Didn’t Read (For The Most Part).
Jon and I recognized a few of the creators and titles up for awards this year like: Monstress, Black Hammer and Hellboy.
Congratulations on all the winners and please don’t be too angry at us if we pronounced your name wrong. We will do better next year so keep up the good work!
Jon also goes over the 2 DC Movie Universe trailers that dropped: Aquaman and Shazam.
It is another San Diego Comics Con so that means another round of Eisner Awards. Jon and I love the Eisners because it nominates that best of the best from the comic industry for categories like Best Writer, Best Artist, Best New Series, Best Ongoing series and more.
The award show spotlights comics that you are probably reading and some that were over looked last year. The nominees always makes for great material for a podcast.
Many comics nominated for Eisners were reviewed by us as comics that you should be reading like Saga, Paper Girls, Kill or Be Killed and Vision. There were also some comics that we have read but have not talked about on the podcast yet like Clean Room and Black Hammer. We are looking forward to giving a more in depth review for those.
Great discussion this week. Looking forward to next years crop of comics.
