Marvel Comics Creators Nominated for 2021 Eisner Awards
In an article posted on Tuesday, June 8th, 2021, the official Marvel Comics website highlighted the Marvel books and creators who have been honored with nominations for the 2021 Eisner Awards! And pardon my pun, but each creator is marvelous (although more women on the list would be nice, but that’s not Marvel’s fault).
Marvelous Eisner Nominees
The comics from Marvel that are nominated include:
1. Daredevil by Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto for “Best Continuing Series”
2. Black Widow by Kelly Thompson and Elena Casagrande for “Best New Series”
3. Checchetto on Daredevil for “Best Penciller/Inker”
4. Marte Grande for “Best Coloring” on several X of Swords books
Several Marvel Comics creators were nominated for an Eisner Award for all of the work they did in 2020, which also includes work for the House of Ideas:
1. Jonathan Hickman for “Best Writer”
2. Zdarksy for “Best Writer”
3. Peach Momoko for “Best Cover Artist”
4. Dave Stewart for “Best Coloring”
5. Matt Wilson for “Best Coloring”
6. Clayton Cowles for “Best Lettering”
The Eisners are an annual award that honors excellence in the comic book industry. Typically, the ceremony is held at the San Diego Convention Center during the San Diego Comic-Con each year, but because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Awards and the 2021 Awards are being held virtually.
The nominations are put together by a team of judges, but the awards themselves are the result of voting by qualified individuals within the industry.
If you think you might qualify to vote, you can register to vote here (and qualified voters should also remember that my wife, Avery Kaplan, contributed several pieces to one of the nominees for “Best Comics Related Journalism/Periodical,” the jaw-droppingly gorgeous PanelxPanel magazine).
Hello! Reminder that @PanelxPanel is a steal for tonnes of excellent essays that will deepen your reading on comics, as well as great interviews and craft discussions from some of the best people making comics across the spectrum of the medium. Highly recommend you check it out! https://t.co/YtIvNfyYp8
