2018 Eisner Awards

26 Jul

In it’s 30th year, the Eisner Awards were announced at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20th. The Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, or Eisner Awards for short are given for creative achievement in American comics in 31 categories ranging from design to genre and everything in between!

As I’ve said before, I’m not a big reader of graphic novels or comics. It’s not my first format to read, but I do try to read a couple each year to keep up in the genre. I used to say I didn’t like reading graphic novels, but I kept finding titles I enjoyed, so I guess I really do like reading graphic novels. I often find the panels and illustrations force me to slow down, which is good because I’m a very fast reader normally as the illustrations enhance the story and it’s not something you normally see in traditional middle grade format.

These are the winners in the children’s and teen categories, but check out all the winners for some absolutely beautifully created works of art as well as some truly imaginative stories.
