Surprise Comics Award/RPG-legend crossover


Since the second-string to my bow is a comics writer, I obviously scanned the Eisners list to see if any of my mates, peers or people who I bought drinks for once had been short-listed for anglophone comics most prestigious awards. So I'd seen Ivan Brandon's 24/7 anthology, Jonathan Hickman's Nightly News and Jason Aaron's Scalped got nods. Hell, even my eye-rolling at Casanova not getting nominated again was leavened by Fraction getting a little appreciation for his Spider-fellow pictorial narrative and his Immortal Iron Fist with Mr Brubaker. But I didn't realise, until commenter Briosafreak mailed me, that Obsidian's Chris "Will forever have Planescape Torment in this gap" Avellone is included in a nomination. Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures is in the best Kids comic category, to which Avellone contributed stories in issues 7 and 10. So a hearty congratulations to him.

And while we're talking developers and comics, someone call Grant Morrison, yeah?
