Of Awards and Artworks

Green, Karen L.

I had the incredible privilege of being asked to be an Eisner Awards judge for 2011. This was a long-held dream come true, and an opportunity both to immerse myself in all of 2010's comics and graphic novels, and also to hang out with five or six like-minded folks for five days of even more reading mixed with endless discussion. The Eisners work similarly to the Oscars: a panel of judges identifies a list of nominees, in close to thirty categories, and then the professional community votes on the nominations, with the winners announced at a gala ceremony in July at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
