James Kochalka and Brecht Evens nominated for Eisner Awards! Celebrate with a sale!
April 4, 2012
Top Shelf offers huge congratulations to James Kochalka and Brecht Evens, who were nominated today for the Eisner Awards!
James Kochalka receives his third Eisner nomination this year, for Dragon Puncher 2: Dragon Puncher Island in the category of Best Publication for Early Readers. His earlier book Pinky & Stinky was nominated for a similar category in 2003. Dragon Puncher Island has the unique distinction of featuring both of James' sons, Eli and Oliver, as "actors" in the story, along with their cats Nooko and Spandy.
Brecht Evens makes his first appearance on the Eisner nomination list with Night Animals, in the category of Best U.S. Edition of International Material. This honor follows on the heels of three nominations for Night Animals at the Stumptown Awards! Readers continue to fall under the spell of Brecht's incredible colors and wordless storytelling.
To celebrate, we've marked down prices on both Dragon Puncher books (for all ages) and Night Animals (for mature readers). If you haven't checked them out yet, now's the time!
