Eisner Awards für Webcomics: Gewinner + Shortlist

Auf der Comic-Con in San Diego wurden wieder die "Oscars" der Comicbranche verliehen: die Eisner-Awards. Webcomics wurden dabei in einer eigenen Kategorie nominiert! Die Mischung dieses Jahr war wieder ziemlich bunt, sowohl von den Themen also auch vom Stil. Wir haben einen Überblick mit Links und Kurzinfos zusammengestellt. Reinklicken lohnt sich!

Eisner Award Webcomics - Gewinner: 


The Contradictions
by Sophie Yanow 
The Contradictions is a work of autobiographical fiction.

During a Reddit-ask-me-anyhing session about "The Contradictions", Yanow explained: "I think that seeing women and queer people talking about their lives in comics made it feel like a medium where I could find a home. After trying to tell fantasy or sci-fi stories, I eventually discovered came most naturally was memoir. I fought it for a while, even though I was regularly blogging as a teen (I think in part due to what Hilary Chute calls “a gendered suspicion of memoir,” ie it’s literature if it’s a man, like Proust or Walden, but it’s trite if it comes from a woman)."


Eisner Award Webcomics - Shortlist: 

Lavender Jack
by Dan Schkade
What begins as a simple game of cat and mouse leads the two opposing forces of Detective Ferrier and Lavender Jack down a rabbit hole of mysterious organizations, betrayal, and lost love.


Let’s Play
by Mongie
She’s young, single and about to achieve her dream of creating incredible videogames. But then life throws her a one-two punch: a popular streamer gives her first game a scathing review. Even worse she finds out that same troublesome critic is now her new neighbor! A funny, sexy and all-too-real story about gaming, memes and social anxiety. Come for the plot, stay for the doggo.


Lore Olympus
by Rachel Smythe
Witness what the gods do…after dark. The friendships and the lies, the gossip and the wild parties, and of course, forbidden love. Because it turns out, the gods aren’t so different from us after all, especially when it comes to their problems. Stylish and immersive, this is one of mythology’s greatest stories -- The Taking of Persephone -- as it’s never been told before.


Tiger, Tiger
by Petra Erika Nordlund
A young noble lady steals her brother's identity and his ship to sail across the world to find love and adventure, and to write a book about her favourite subject: the fascinating life cycle of sea sponges!
