Prime Baby, my graphic novella about sibling rivalry and space aliens, just got nominated for an Eisner! Thank you, 2011 Eisner Committee!  Thanks for recognizing my book, and thanks especially for all your hard work!  The Eisner Awards are incredibly important for the industry and the medium.  Reading comics is fun, but reading that many comics has to be pretty rough on the brain.

Every time the Eisner list comes out I’m reminded of all the amazing books from the year before that I haven’t read yet. (Comic Book Guy: The Comic Book sounds especially awesome.) Great to see Raina Telgemeier’s Smile, Barry Deutch’s Hereville, and  Gerry Alanguilan’s Elmer get some recognition!  Those were a few of my favorite books from last year.

Here’s a preview of Prime Baby:
