Aaaaaand we’re back! San Diego Comic-Chaos has come and gone again. Infinite thanks to those of you who came by the booth and said (especially if you bought books or brought snacks/swag). Please enjoy this round-up of this year’s show!
And the winner is…
Excessively proud of Emil Ferris for her (count ’em) THREE well-deserved Eisner Awards this year. She took home the prizes for:
And if there had been a prize for Best Acceptance Speech, she would have won that handily as well. There was hardly a dry eye in the place by the time she left the stage.
Other Fantagraphics artists who will be adorning their mantles with shiny new trophies this year are:
Mark Newgarden and Paul Karasik — How to Read Nancy: The Elements of Comics in Three Easy Panels
Best Comics-Related Book
Marcelo D’Salete and Andrea Rosenberg — Run for It: Stories of Slaves Who Fought for Their Freedom
Best U.S. Edition of International Material
and the fine folks at TCJ.com, Dan Nadel, Timothy Hodler & Tucker Stone

We’re also excited to report that our Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds received his well-deserved Inkpot Award in a surprise finale to our Forever Fantagraphics panel. Look how happy he is!
