“The Nomination IS the Award …”

… That’s what Jim Rockford said when he was up for a Private Investigator trophy in the 1979 Rockford Files episode, “Nice Guys Finish Dead.” The Library of American Comics is equally humble, but proudly notes that Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Strips Volume 1 is a nominee in this year’s Eisner Awards for the category “Best Archival Collection/Project—Strips.” As new Star Wars stories have hit the big screen and the comic shop shelves in recent years, we’re delighted to have made it possible for comics lovers and Star Wars fans alike to enjoy this excellent work by writer/artist Russ Manning, Steve Gerber, Alfredo Alcala, and other fine talent.

As always, the Eisner Award winners will be announced in July, at the San Diego Comic-Con. Everyone at LOAC and IDW extends their thanks to the Eisner committee for acknowledging our efforts.

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that our sister imprint—EuroComics—garnered two nominations for Jean-Pierre Gibrat’s Flight of the Raven!
