The Oscars of Comics

I could not be prouder to associate my work with Dr. Frances Gateward and John Jennings, whose edited collection The Blacker the Ink: Constructions of Blackness in Comics and Sequential Art, has just won the Eisner Award for Best Academic/Scholarly Work! Wow! The Eisner Awards are announced at Comic Con International: San Diego, aka San Diego Comic-Con.

This means there are people in the world who saw new movie trailers, met their comics industry creative heroes, dressed up like badass supervillains, and also found out about a book that includes something I wrote–all in the same place. Much better news than anything coming out of the Republican National Convention.
