Presenting The 2020 Eisner Awards Winners

Hello my friends and Happy Saturday to you all. As previously mentioned, the San Diego Comic Con went virtual this year and has been delivering a number of awesome things since this past Thursday under the banner “ComicCon@Home” and much like the physical event has been keeping websites such as this one very busy. Despite the inability to host a real in person affair there are still comics to announce, film trailers to reveal and toys to showcase. One of the big events that happens annually during SDCC is the doling out of the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards and I am here to help share the winners of the awards that were announced last night. I’ve left the nominees in for good measure and I hope that some of your favorites won in the end. Let’s take a look.
