Two Notable Eisner Nomination Congratulations!

The 2011 Eisner Nominations are out, and while they seemed like a nice batch of nominees, I felt it worth spotlighting a couple of particularly notable congratulations.

First, congrats to Comic Book Resources for getting a Comic Book Journalism nomination.

But also, congratulations to our Line It Is Drawn artist, Caanan Grall, who was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic for his great web series, Max Overacts (which you can read here).

Congrats, Caanan and CBR and to all the other nominees!

Max Overacts is all kinds of awesome, totally deserved.

Thanks, Brian! Thanks, Oz!

Congratulations Caanan. You deserve it. I can’t imagine what it feels like to be nominated.

Holy snaps! major congrats, caanan! being nominated is like winning already in some ways. : )

He’s too good for us now. They grow up so fast.

Congrats, Caanan!

Great, now he’s going to be too big to keep doing The Line It Is Drawn. I can see the fame is already going to his head, what with him saying “Thanks.” Clearly the sign of someone drunk on fame and power, and possibly whiskey.

But sincerely, congrats to Caanan and anyone on this blog that contributed to CBR’s nomination.

Can you be drunk on Sprite? If so, I am. But, thanks again, guys!

And bongoes, it feels kind of like pop rocks in your brain. Soon followed by your arms and then legs. Then reality sets in, and I still realise I’m an unemployed bum who can’t pay his bills. Yay! :)

Fantastic! Two very well deserved nominations for Caanan and CBR. Caanan’s Max Overacts is outstanding.

I’m torn between hoping for Lackadaisy Cats and Max Overreacts to win the award. Both are amazing comics.

I’ve enjoyed Caanan’s submissions on The Line IT Is Drawn for months now, and in the past two days I finally went and read all of Max Overacts…. man, that comic is awesome! Your nomination is very well deserved!

Congrats to Eisner Award Nominee Caanan and CBR! :D
