Eisner Award Nominees, The End of Marvel Essentials and More
If you haven't already done so, check out the recently announced nominees for the 2014 Eisner Awards, some of which have previously been discussed at The Comics Alternative. (Keep an eye out for their Eisner Awards Preview show as well.) I know I'll be discussing these nominees further in the coming months.
Did you know that the Marvel Essentials line is finished? Marvel Essentials were thick black-and-white editions of (usually) Marvel comics from the 1960s and 1970s. They're still a pretty good deal; for about $20 you can get at least 20 issues (at least 400 pages). Marvel's new Epic line will be more expensive (starting at $35), but will be in color.
And last, but certainly not least, I should have more reviews posted at The Comics Alternative during the coming weeks and maybe even a podcast. Stay tuned!
