I’ve just discovered that you can add any nomination into the Eisner Awards that you like. Seeing as I was unfortunate enough not to get on the shortlist by the judges (thanks for the correction, Jackie!), I’m asking very nicely for all you comic professionals, retailers, publishers and editors to vote for Erotic Comics: A Graphic History (Vol. 1) From Tijuana Bibles to Underground Comix in the Best Comics-Related Book category. There’s some pretty stiff competition, but let’s see if we can rig the polls and have a Brit win this section! ;-) Actually, this'd be a great test to see how many people actually read this blog as I really have no idea (but I'm starting to suspect it's more than 5)!
Simply register at: www.eisnervote.com
And when voting click on the Write-in button for Best Comics-Related Book and type in: Erotic Comics: A Graphic History (Vol 1) by Tim Pilcher
And if you’d like to be nominated for an award, please let me know and I’ll return the favour! But hurry! Voting closes on 15 June 2009, 11 days after my 40th birthday—and winning an Eisner would be the best pressie of all! ;-) Go on, you know it mocks sense!
