News flash! I’m proud to serve as a judge for the latest (2013) round of the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, in the company of comics journalist and critic Michael Cavna, comics retailer Adam Heal, professor of Literacy and Childhood Education Katie Monnin, artist, critic, and teacher Frank Santoro, and CCI (Comic-Con International) co-registrar and longtime staffer John Smith. Good company to be in!
The Eisner Awards will be presented at CCI 2013, to be held July 18 to 21 in, as usual, San Diego. Between now and the judges’ get-together in April, I expect to be reading even more comics than usual (heh). I’ve grabbed myself a new notebook, resumed posting mini-reviews to Goodreads, and started scouring the “Best of 2012″ lists that have been spreading like wildfire since Thanksgiving. I can hardly wait to compare notes with my fellow judges!
I’m happy and honored to serve!
