About the Eisner Awards
Named for acclaimed comics creator Will Eisner, the Eisner Awards highlight the best publications and creators in comics and graphic novels published between January 1 and December 31 each year. It is often referred to as the comics industry’s equivalent to the Academy Awards.
The nominations in each category are generated by a jury of five to six members and then voted on by comic book professionals. The jury represents aspects of the comics industry, including creators, retailers, librarians, academic/historians, journalists, and fans.
Comic-Con hosts the presentation of the awards, as outlined on their website:
The Eisner Awards are presented with the support of the San Diego Comic Convention, a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation organized for charitable purposes and dedicated to creating the general public’s awareness of and appreciation for comics and related popular art forms, including nonprofit educational organizations dedicated to creating awareness of and appreciation for comics and related popular art forms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contributions of comics to art and culture.
