On Wired’s Underwire blog, Scott Thill sifts through the 2007 Eisner Awards nominations, calling the list “impressive,” even if manga “continues to be relatively ignored even as its aesthetics change the face of not just comics but also the cinema it births around malls and home hi-defs near you.”
Thill goes on to point out what he considers obvious oversights: no writing nods for Alan Moore or Brian K. Vaughan.
About the third time I read over the nominees, it struck me that David Petersen’s Mouse Guard didn’t make the list. A little surprising, maybe. Still, it’s an incredibly diverse list.
Thill also directs us to Fantagraphics Books’ Eisner sale, with 20 percent off their nominated titles through April 30.
