Eisner Awards

The Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards were announced a couple of weeks ago at Comic Con in San Diego. I just checked up on them and was excited to find out that last year's "Works for Young Readers" category has been split in two--one for kids and one for teens. This is an exciting reflection of the continued growth in the youth comic books and graphic novel market!

This year's winners:

Best Publication for Kids: Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 and Mouse Guard: Winter 1152, by David Petersen (Archaia)

Best Publication for Teens: Laika, by Nick Abadzis (First Second)

ALD has Mouse Guard: Fall...Anybody read it yet? If you haven't, take a look and let us know what you think!
