[Editors Note: I have included some photos from the weekend judging but in the group photos, some of the book that are being held were not actual nominees but some of the submitted books were used by accident] With San Diego Comic Con International this week I wanted to tell the story of what it’s like to be an judge for the Eisner Awards.
There is a ton of new comic books to review this week and the video is a long one so please bear with the length of it because there were so many comics to cover.
Another big week for new comic books with a lot of new number 1 series. This weeks video struggled with technical difficulties in recording the video with the software I normally use wasn’t working properly so I had to do it with the phone microphone so the audio is not up to the usual standards.
Lots of new comic books to cover in this weeks new comic book review video. DC Comics Pride Month continues with the DC Pride one shot and some great new titles like 6 Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton and Bunny Mask that were nice surprise reads.
Netflix dropped the first season of Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth on Friday and binged all eight episodes over the course of the day and I am very happy to say that it was well worth the wait.
A pretty small week for new comics this week, with mostly returning series and a few new ones. As always make sure that you support you’re local comic shop and I get mine at Pulp Fiction Comics Long Beach CA and they have a great Facebook Group Page that has a great active community.
Every once in a while there is a comic or graphic novel that comes along and is one of those that you can call seminal work and Barry Windsor-Smith’s Monsters from Fantagraphics Books.
