Eisner awards


With the full name of Will Eisner Awards, they are given at the annual Comic-Con International convention in San Diego to recognize especially skilled comic book professionals. They were created in 1987 as a successor to Kirby Awards, which were discontinued that year. There are 34 categories with winners being nominated by a five-member panel, and then voted on by selected comic book professionals. The most prestigious among the awards is the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame. Recipients in that category include Chester Gould, Georges Herriman, Al Capp and Harvey Kurtzman.
