Online voting is now open! To vote, you must be a professional working in the comics or related industries as a creator (writer, artist, cartoonist, colorist, letterer), a publisher or editor, a retailer (comics store owner or manager), a graphic novels librarian, or a comics historian/educator. Eligible voters can visit www.eisnervote.com to register and then select up to four picks in the Hall of Fame category. The deadline for voting is March 4. Further eligibility information is provided on the EisnerVote.com site
For the rest of us, take a look at the 2013 nominees. They’re all extremely notable and worthy, but I have a soft spot for ‘local’, Lee Falk. He may have been from the US, but Frew publications’ local 65 year run of The Phantom makes him an Australian icon. Hell, I was well into my twenties before I realised it wasn’t an Australian creation – so I know who I’ll be voting for. Actually, I won’t be voting, but you know what I mean.
Over to you: if you can/could cast a vote – who gets the nod from you?
