“It’s an honor just to be nominated.”

 Finding Frank and his Friend nominated for Will Isner Award 2011 - Best Graphic Album — New

We’ve been hitting the cake pretty hard since the Eisner Award Nominees were announced last week and Finding Frank and His Friend was among the books chosen.

The nominees represent a wide range of really stunning work.  From Juanjo Guarnido’s work on Blacksad, Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys and, of course, Mike Mignola’s covers – it’s an impressive list to be on.

Our Finding Frank and His Friend is nominated for the category Best Graphic Album – New.  Voting, which will begin this month, is open to comics creators, editors, publishers, and retailers.

The results will be announced at the awards ceremony on Friday, July 22 as part of Comic-Con International 2011.  We didn’t even ask Margie if she wanted to attend – she’s already been shopping for gowns.

We’re very pleased with the recognition, and honestly, it’s great just to be nominated.
