As much of the comic world knows, nominations for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, commonly known as the Eisner Awards, were announced this week. It is with great pleasure and pride that we congratulate three talented GoComics cartoonists on their nominations!
Richard Thompson’s The Complete Cul de Sac has been nominated for Best Humor Publication.
Creator of Jim Benton Cartoons, Jim Benton's Dog Butts and Love. And Stuff Like That. And Cats. has also been nominated for Best Humor Publication.
Last but not least, Brian Fies, who recently joined GoComics as the creator of Mom’s Cancer has another comic, The Last Mechanical Monster, which is up for the Best Digital/Web Comic!
The Eisner Awards are the equivalent of The Oscars in the comic industry, chosen by a blue-ribbon panel of judges, and we couldn’t be more excited for these three very talented and deserving cartoonists!
Best of luck to Richard Thompson, Jim Benton and Brian Fies!
