2011 Eisner nominees sale!

A couple of days ago, the Will Eisner Award nominees of 2011 were announced, so I was thinking what better way to celebrate some of the very best in sequential art from last year then to have a sale! So through the month of April, Alternate Reality Comics, in fabulous Las Vegas, will have the 2011 Eisner nominees on sale for 20% off!

The Eisner Awards are named after Will Eisner, the creator of The Spirit and many excellent graphic novels such as A Contract With God and Fagin the Jew. Basically they are like the Oscars for the comic book medium. The Eisner Awards are headed by Jackie Estrada and have different judges every year. I had the honorable distinction to have been an Eisner judge a few years back and it has been one of my highlights of my many wonderful years "working" in this industry. This years judges were Ned Cato Jr., Karen Green, Andrew Helfer (who was a long time DC editor and wrote an excellent Shadow comic for them), Rich Johnson (comic news site Bleeding Cool), Chris Powell (the brains behind the Lone Star Comic Book store operation), and John Berry.

I usually have at least one book that I think was overlooked by the judges on any given year, but this year I was on board with just about all of the selections, although I would have included Sarah Glidden's How To Understand Israel In 60 Days Or Less as one of the best reality based graphic novels of last year. The full 2011 Eisner nominations can be seen here: http://www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_eisners_11nom.php

I KNOW that amongst this years Eisner nominees there is a selection or selections that would speak to whatever sparks your comic book reading buttons and probably quite a few that have fallen under most people's radar in the sea of great comics and graphic novels that come out, so remember to check out Alternate Reality Comics' 20% off sale on some of 2010's best through the month of April!
