Pretty pumped to see Old Man Logan, Asterios Polyp and Scott Pilgrim get nods. Good to see Marvel taking a chance on Invisible Iron Man's new covers paid off too.

The Eisners are always funny, because there's some good stuff in there, and then a bunch of crap I've never heard about, and a couple kinda questionable nominations. :lol:

There’s so many comics on there that I haven’t read, I almost feel bad for pulling for the handful I really want to succeed. Asterios Polyp is one of my favourite comics ever, but I have no idea how good the other nominees in that category are (except for The Hunter, which was my second favourite comic released last year).
I do a podcast with some guy. Feel free to listen.

Normally I laugh at how arbitrary award shows and such seem to be, but when it comes to comics, I always think about when Scott McCloud came to my city on a lecture tour and I asked him why comics don't sell like they did in the 40's and 50's, his answer was basically that mainstream comics were all stuff that had been done before. Basically, I look at the Eisner noms as stuff I SHOULD have been reading, instead of getting all antsy over another X-crossover.

Apparently they have made Dylan songs into comics.

Also what is a Graphic Album? I tried doing a search and nothing useful seemed to come up.

As far as I can tell, it's just another way of saying Graphic Novel

Asterios Polyp should win for every art category. The things Mazzucchelli did with art in that book is incredible. I'm also hoping that Irredeemable wins for best ongoing. Of course, the Eisners are kind of like the Oscars for me; it's cool if what I like wins, but if it doesn't, who cares.
