Festivals Extra: Eisner Awards Name Presenters, Show Off Logo
The Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards sent out a press release yesterday showing off their 30th Anniversary logo and running through their presenters and sponsors. The presenter list is always fun, and I can't imagine what a nice long round of standing-ovation applause the very admirable Nichelle Nichols will receive from that audience. The presenters are:
That is a slightly more non-comics celebrity-laden line-up than usual, but the awards step in that direction every couple of years.
I don't see a whole lot that's different from the extra-award presentations. Two women winning the Finger should be a nice, extended moment. One-time winner Scott McCloud giving out the Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award should be fun, too.
I look forward to the event and hope to see you there. I'll be near the back. Remember that the bar in the hallway is slightly less busy than the one in the ballroom.
