Yep, Alter Ego is nominated for “Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism” in this year’s Eisner Awards! The category was especially challenging this year, since it included not just print publications, but websites as well. Haven’t seen the list of what AE is up against yet (we just got the word from Eisner chair Jackie Estrada a few minutes ago via e-mail), but this is great timing, considering Roy Thomas is a Guest of Honor at this year’s Comicon International: San Diego, where the Eisner Awards will be handed out this summer.
Great work, Roy, as well as Jim Amash, Bill Schelly, Michael T. Gilbert, P.C. Hamerlinck, Chris Day, and everyone else who’s worked so hard over the last 68 issues to make this honor so well-deserved!
