Numerous nods for Top Shelf talent at 2019 Eisner Awards!

April 26, 2019

Judges for the 2019 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards announced their list of nominees today, honoring a fantastic array of Top Shelf titles: 

As usual, there are plenty more nominations for Top Shelf's "extended family," including another nod for Carolyn Nowak, one for Peter & Maria Hoey for the 7th issue of Coin-Op (our recent hardcover collects #1-6), plus Jeff Lemire, Mark Russell, Eddie Campbell, and many more, including several great books from our IDW colleagues!

"It's such an honor to see the Eisner judges celebrate the diverse range of graphic novels that Top Shelf has published lately — with James Kochalka celebrating the whimsical anarchy of young boys, Erin Nations introducing teens to a wide spectrum of queer and trans experience, Carolyn Nowak animating millennial womanhood with comedy and pathos, and Nate Powell exploring the dark terrors of parenting. These nominations (and these books) demonstrate the persistent truth that 'weird personal comics' can in fact be universal, because they let us see inside each other's hearts," says Leigh Walton, Top Shelf marketing director and editor.

Congratulations to all the nominees — we can't wait to celebrate in San Diego in July!
