The nominees were selected by a committee consisting of representatives of the West Coast Comics Club and Comic-Con International. The winner will be chosen by past Manning award winners and Russ Manning assistants. The recipient will be announced during the Eisner Awards ceremony on July 22 at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Past winners include such folks as Dave Stevens, Jan Duursema, Steve Rude, Scott McCloud, Art Adams, Eric Shanower, Dan Brereton, Jeff Smith, Gene Ha, Alexander Maleev, Goran Sudzuka, Eric Wight, David Petersen, Cathy Malkasian, Eleanor Davis, and Marion Churchland…so you know…good company.

    Any chance you might show a page from the book that Cermak was actually nominated for?

    Just sayin’.

    Impressive group. I do think past NOMINEES should be able to vote too though.

  3. FYI, further examples of Teagan Gavet’s work can be seen at http://www.nordguard.com. I’m not sure the Twitter account you’re linking to has much information…
