CM Podcast 62 – 2016 Eisner Awards

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!

Your comics pal,

Jim

CM Podcast 10 – It’s the Eisner Awards

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.  It is where you will hear and see exclusive content of upcoming big name movies, TV shows, comics and much, much more!

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.

Jon and I review some of the categories and discuss who was picked and go over what we think of the books and creative teams.  We don’t cover all of the categories but if you would like to see them all go here:  http://www.comic-con.org/awards/2015-eisner-award-nominations

We had some technical difficulties recording this week so I broke the podcast into 2 parts.  I will post part 1 tonight and then work on posting part 2 on Wednesday or Thursday.

Some of the highlights of parts 1 and 2:

  • Jon and I butcher a bunch of peoples names
  • Jon waxes poetic on Pogo
  • You hear my spot on impersonation of Hulk Hogan and Randy “Macho Man” Savage
  • Both of us confuse the word Sega for the word Saga (a lot)
  • I sing some comics titles
  • And much more…
