2009 Eisner Award Winners
We're happy that Comic Book Tattoo: Narrative Art Inspired by the Lyrics and Music of Tori Amos which was edited by Rantz Hoseley (published by Image) won the Eisner Awards Best Anthology category. We've both got copies of it at home – it's a stunning production and a larger than life book featuring works from our friends and colleagues Colleen Doran, James A Owen, as well as Aussie Trudy Cooper. Well done all to all the contributors and to Rantz for his vision. Another books we have on our shelves is Neil Gaiman's Coraline (published by HarperCollins) which picked up the Best Publication for Teens/Tweens. The film adaptation is screening in our cinemas even as we speak. The overall Eisner winner with three awards for Best Limited Series, Best Graphic Novel – Reprinted Material and Best Publication Design was Mike Mignola's Hellboy (published by Dark Horse). ICv2 has a full list of Eisner nominees and winners winners. Congratulations to all.
