SDCC 2014: Eisner Award winners announced

Eisner Awards 2014

One of the highlights of the annual Comic-Con International in San Diego is the announcement of the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. The winners of the 2013 Eisner Awards were announced at a gala ceremony held during Comic-Con International: San Diego.

Once again Saga was a big winner, with wins for Best Continuing Series, Best Writer for Brian K. Vaughan and Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (interior art) for Fiona Staples. Hawkeye #11 took out best single issue for the infamous “Pizza Dog”, with David Aja also earning a prize as Best Cover Artist.

The Property was awarded Best Graphic Album (New), while unsurprisingly, The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story took out the Best Reality-Based Work category.

Other major prizes included the Bill Finger Awards which went to to Robert Kanigher, Bill Mantlo, and Jack Mendelsohn. and Bob Clampett The Humanitarian Award was given to Joe Field. As we already knew in advance, Hayao Miyazaki, Alan Moore, Dennis O’Neil and Bernie Wrightson were inducted into the Hall of Fame, with Hall Of Fame Judges’ Choice Orrin C. Evans, Irwin Hasen and Sheldon Moldoff also honoured.

Exciting for Australians is that a local store tied for the Spirit Of Retailing award. All Star Comics, Melbourne, Australia and  Legends Comics & Coffee, Omaha, NE took this one out.
