You’ve probably heard of the Eisner Awards by now and if not, suffice to say they’re about as high as you can get in the comics world.
So you’ll understand why we’re over the moon at the news that The Property by Rutu Modan just scooped the Best New Graphic Novel award this past weekend….
…but she does it anyway. You don’t just tell a pretty girl like Toa no and expect it to stick.
I think this was the best single issue of anything I wrote in the past year, I am really proud of this issue.
No lie, I teared up at the end of this issue.
Threw some colors on Chris Samnee’s Spider - Gwen sketch he did. I’m really psyched for this book and I don’t even like Gwen Stacy! Go get ‘em Jason and Robbi!
Okay, what?!! Fresh off her Eisner win Jordie decided to take time to color one o’ my drawrings!!
Love it, ma’am!! Woo!! :D

HARVEY AWARDS ANNOUNCES 2014 NOMINEES, CONGRATULATIONS IN ADVANCE TO ‘HAWKEYE’ #11
By Chris Sims
A nomination for a Harvey Award, named for legendary MAD Magazine cartoonist and editor Harvey Kurtzman, is unquestionably the most prestigious honor that has ever been bestowed on a comic book about NASCAR. Seriously. It happened in 2009 with NASCAR Heroes.
The Harvey Awards have released the list of this year’s nominees. As you might expect, the usual suspects like Hawkeye and Daredevil were honored, along with other nomination leaders Saga and Quantum and Woody. Archie, Valiant and Image all received a good amount of nominations, but it’s BOOM! Studios, along with its Archaia imprint, that earned the most recognition with 26 nominations; well more than any other publisher.
Also of note: Out of 22 categories, there was only one nomination for DC Comics, going to Danny Miki for his work inking Greg Capullo on Batman, and no nominations for IDW Publishing, which is very surprising considering the several categories for design and presentation that the company’s Artist’s Edition volumes could justifiably sweep.
