The 32nd Annual Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards were presented at a virtual ceremony on Friday evening, July 24.
Normally, these awards are held at the San Diego Comic Con (AKA The International Comic Con) but due to COVID-19, the Comics Con was cancelled. Luckily, the ceremonies were held virtually which you can watch here.
I believe this is our 6th Eisner Award review we have done on the Comics Misremembered Podcast. We like to cover the awards like Best New Series, Best Continuing Series, Best Writer, Best Artist but we don’t cover all the awards. If you want to see the list of categories and winners then go to the Eisner Awards website here.
Jon and I talk about the series and creators that we have read and which series that we are most interested in checking out.
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.
Another San Diego Comic Con and another Eisner Awards show. Jon and I will be reviewing the 2016 nominees and winners for most of the Eisner categories.
The Eisners always have some stiff competition and this year’s contenders were some heavy hitters. I agree with most of the winners, especially Paper Girls!
We read the nominees, give our options on the lists (if we have any) and discuss the winners. Some of the titles that were nominated and won were some of our picks in previous podcast so go through our site and listen to our old podcasts. We will give you insight to future Eisner winners!
San Diego is a hot bed of excitement this week because it’s the International Comic Con AKA the San Diego Comic Con. For those not in the know, The San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) is like the Mecca of all Geekdom.

One of the many celebrations at the SDCC is the prestigious Will Eisner Awards. This is were the comic community celebrates the most outstanding work of writers and artists in their field of work.
