Where there’s a Will…

As usual at the Will Eisner Awards, there was intense competition in the “Best Archival Comic Strip Collection” category; in fact, we were even competing against ourselves—both Bob Montana’s Archie and Cliff Sterrett’s Polly and Her Pals earned nominations. As you can tell by the above cover, Archie took home the honors. It’s the third win in four years for the Library of American Comics, and we appreciate the continued support from you, our loyal readers.

With the busy San Diego Comicon over, it’s back to our drawing boards and computers. Deadlines loom ahead!

Three More Eisner Nominations!

The Eisner Award nominations have been announced. In the first three years since we created the Library of American Comics, we received six nominations and took home the award twice.

This year, we up it by one, with three nominations. The massive Polly and Her Pals has two: one for Best Archival Collection—Comic Strips. and one for Best Publication Design.

Also nominated in the Best Archival Collection category is our tribute to Bob Montana’s earlyArchie newspaper strips.

It’s gratifying to see the incredible cartooning of Cliff Sterrett and Bob Montana continue to be recognized. Next year will be the 100th anniversary of “Polly and Her Pals.” What better way to celebrate the strip!

Thanks to the Eisner judges for recognizing our efforts! Vote early and vote often!!!
