The Library and IDW were triple winners at the Eisners this year. In addition to Bloom Countytaking home the Archival Newspaper Strip award, The Rocketeer won as Best Archival Project—Comic Books, and Darwyn Cooke’s amazing adapation of Richard Stark’s Parker: The Huntedwas feted for Best Adaptation from Another Work. A big round of applause for all, especially Scott Dunbier, who edited all three winners!
