Congratulations to JON B. COOKE and ROY THOMAS for their just-announced 2023 Eisner Award nominations! Their tireless efforts have resulted in these three accolades:
Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism:
• Alter Ego, edited by Roy Thomas (TwoMorrows)
• Comic Book Creator, edited by Jon B. Cooke (TwoMorrows)
Best Comics-Related Book:
• The Charlton Companion, by Jon B. Cooke (TwoMorrows
Yep, Jon and Roy are gonna duke it out for Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism, and possibly split the vote (the curse of them making TwoMorrows look good by documenting so much great comics history!). But it truly is an honor just to be nominated! And all modesty aside, as publisher, I, John Morrow, knew the Charlton Companion was a shoo-in for a nomination; I mean, have you SEEN that book? If not, take a gander at its awesomeness here.
The full list of nominees for all categories can be found here. And the winners will be announced on Friday, July 21 at the gala ceremony held during Comic-Con International in San Diego.
