THEY CALLED US ENEMY and PENNY NICHOLS Nominated for Eisner Awards!

June 4, 2020

The judges for the 2020 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards have just announced their nominations, and we're honored to report that three are for Top Shelf books!

They Called Us Enemy, by George Takei, Justin Eisinger, Steven Scott, and Harmony Becker, is nominated for Best Reality-Based Work.

Penny Nichols, by MK Reed, Greg Means, and Matt Wiegle is nominated in two categories: Best Publication for Teens and also Best Writer.

“We’re so proud to have Penny Nichols and They Called Us Enemy honored with Eisner nominations,” says Top Shelf editor-in-chief Chris Staros. “Penny Nichols is a hilarious celebration of DIY creativity and a love letter to the comics community, so it’s wonderful to see that love being returned. And unfortunately, George Takei’s memories of legalized racism are still painfully relevant today, making They Called Us Enemy a vital book that calls us to build a better future.”
