Since we have no reviews today*, I thought I’d point you in the direction of a list of the Eisner Award winners for 2009. The awards are considered “the oscars of the comic book industry” but I’m sure you figured this out from the title of the post.
I’d venture to guess, if you’re looking to make a leap into graphic novels the titles on that list would be a pretty damn good place to start.
* the irony here is that I could write a review of Art Spiegelman’s In the Shadow of No Towers for today, but instead I am going to have to put that off until tomorrow. Today I will do the writing that pays the mortgage.
