2009 Eisner Award Nominees
Via the Comics Reporter, here are the nominees for the Eisner Award. The awards, which are named after the late comics legend Will Eisner, will be given at the San Diego Comic Con, which takes place in late July. This will be the 21st year for the award; the Eisners were first awarded in 1988 as one of two replacements for the Jack Kirby Awards, but there were no awards given in 1990. (The other successor to the Kirbys were the Harveys, named for Harvey Kurtzman.)
Previous winners can be found at the the Eisner Wikipedia site.
