Another Hall of Fame?

April 22, 2007

I’ve been trying to think of something else to say about this year’s Eisner nominations other than “Wow, that’s a really nice list of nominations, filled with books I like.” Since I’m at a loss to find much reason to nitpick, I’ll ask a question instead.

Wouldn’t it be kind of neat if there was a companion category for the Hall of Fame of creators that recognized really great individual works from the medium? Since the awards have only been around for about two decades, and since not everything is going to get a spiffy new archival treatment to qualify for a contemporary award, I think it might be a nice addition.
