SDCC: The Eisner Awards
The staple of Comic-Con, the Eisner Awards, occurred yesterday evening, and Heidi MacDonald over at The Beat did everyone a favor by liveblogging the ceremony.
Check out her coverage right here.
The Eisners, in case you aren’t familiar, are essentially the Academy Awards of the comics world.
Here’s a taste:
Next up…Best Painted Work, and it’s Eric Powell! Eric says he poured his blood, sweat, and years into CHINATOWN and he’s very gratified.
Best Cover Artist…James Jean…big shock! No one saw that one coming.
Our next presenters…adorable Paul Dini and Misty Lee! But Misty isn’t here– what the….Paul goes off to call her…and brings out a big giant empty box…and next thing you know….MISTY LEE was in the box all along? How did that happen? Is it…MAGIC?
The first award they present is Best Colorist and Dave Stewart wins the popular vote in the hall and the award.
