Local Cartoonist Up for Eisner Award

And the Nominee Is ...

Joel Priddy, cartoonist and instructor at the Memphis College of Art. And the winner is ...

We won't know until July 27th. That's when the winners of this year's Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, the most prestigious in the business, are announced. But until then, see what prompted the Eisner judges to nominate Priddy in the "Best Single Issue" category: The Preposterous Voyages of IronHide Tom (AdHouse).

Win or lose, good to see Priddy gaining more national recognition. Late last year, Harvey Pekar picked Priddy to be included in The Best American Comics 2006 (Houghton Mifflin).
