Eyeing the Eisners

The just-announced 2008 Eisner Award nominations for best work in the comics form include three for Shaun Tan's The Arrival:

  • Best Graphic Album--New
  • Best US Edition of International Material
  • Best Writer/Artist
However, that book is not listed in the categories of Best Publication for Kids and Best Publication for Teens. (This despite the break-up of the previous category Best Title for a Younger Audience into two, providing twice the slots for nominations.)

Thus continues the long discussion of the most appropriate audience for The Arrival.

Other comics mentioned here on Oz and Ends that were nominated for some award or another include: However, as usual, most of the nominated works are new to me.
