This past weekend at San Diego Comic Con, The Mire won an Eisner Award for Best Single Issue! I am completely overwhelmed for the support everyone has shown my self published comics. I’m also honored because I’ve read all the other issues in the category and they were all phenomenal!
Post York was such a finely crafted book, and it came with a floppy record! James Romberger is such a great draftsman too! Really cool. Lose is a phenomenal piece of work; Michael DeForge has been consistently pushing the envelope and making some of the best comics out there. Michael Kupperman’s Tales Designed to Thrizzle has been one of my favorites for years, and don’t even get me started on Pope Hats!! Ethan Rilly is a brilliant storyteller.
Not just nominees, but it seems like everyone I know is doing the best work of their careers! I am constantly inspired by what I see people doing, and it just makes me want to work harder. And the fact that I’ve had the encouragement, help and friendship from so many people along the way of making these little books, I can’t express how much it means.
Thanks again you guys, you are the best.
Kelly and I have one our favorite writers on this week, the always awesome Greg Rucka. We talk about his new series Lazarus (which you MUST pick up tomorrow) and his Kickstarter for Lady Sabre.
Kelly and I have a early review of Lazarus and we also review Becky Cloonan’s Demeter.
In case you aren’t following me on Instagram… This happens.
Belit drawn by Becky Cloonan in Conan: Queen of the Black Coast #2. The first 3 or 4 issues are amazing. Some of the best comics of the year.
