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.
San Diego is a hot bed of excitement this week because it’s the International Comic Con AKA the San Diego Comic Con.
