Jul 26, 2021
Image Comics congratulates all the winners and nominees of last week’s Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards and thanks retailers, librarians, media, fans, and members of the industry for the ongoing enthusiasm for creator-owned storytelling.
Pulp (JUL210086) by Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips, and Jacob Phillips was honored with the “Best Graphic Album—New” category award.
Max Winters, a pulp writer in 1930s New York, finds himself drawn into a story not unlike the tales he churns out at five cents a word-tales of a Wild West outlaw dispensing justice with a six-gun. But will Max be able to do the same when pursued by bank robbers, Nazi spies, and enemies from his past?
One part thriller, one part meditation on a life of violence, PULP is unlike anything award-winning BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS have ever done before. This celebration of pulp fiction set in a world on the brink is another must-have hardcover from one of comics' most acclaimed teams.
James Tynion IV (who co-created/wrote The Department of Truth with artist Martin Simmonds) snagged the award for “Best Writer."
COLE TURNER has studied conspiracy theories all his life, but he isn't prepared for what happens when he discovers that all of them are true, from the JFK Assassination to Flat Earth Theory and Reptilian Shapeshifters. One organization has been covering them up for generations. What is the deep, dark secret behind the Department of Truth?
From bestselling writer JAMES TYNION IV (Batman, Something is Killing the Children) and breakout artist MARTIN SIMMONDS (Dying is Easy)!
Collects THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH #1-5.
Anand RK (who co-created/drew Blue In Green with writer Ram V) took the award for “Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (interior art).”
Popular variant artist Peach Momoko was recognized with the “Best Cover Artist” award.
Ed Brubaker and Marcos Martín won the “Best Digital Comic” award for their series Friday (AUG210009), which will be available in print format for the first time from Image Comics this November.

Now she's in college, starting a new life on her own - or so she thought. When Friday comes home for the holidays, she's immediately pulled back into Lance's orbit and finds that something very strange and dangerous is happening in their little New England town...
This is literally the Christmas vacation from Hell, and they may not survive to see the New Year.
COLLECTS FRIDAY #1-3.
