Eisnerawards_logo_11The nominees for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards were announced on Tuesday, April 19, with the winners to be crowned at Comic-Con International in San Diego on July 22.

According to the announcement from Comic-Con International, Fantagraphics and Image Comics acquired the most nominations (17 for Fantagraphics, and 14 for Image plus another 4 shared nominations). Women creators received a record 61 nominations versus 44 last year--a stark contrast to the all-male shortlist of the Angoule?me Festival’s "Grand Prix" Award in January this year, which led several of the nominees to withdraw their names from the Angoule?me Award in protest.

Below is a selection of the 30 award categories. The full list can be found here.
