My work has been nominated for an Eisner Award!
“Murder He Wrote,” a.k.a. the Simpsons Death Note parody I did the pencils for in The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror #14, has been nominated for Best Short Story.
Best Short Story
“Actual Size” by Chris Ware, in Kramers Ergot 7 (Buenaventura Press)
“Chechen War, Chechen Women,” by Joe Sacco, in I Live Here (Pantheon)
“Freaks,” by Laura Park, in Superior Showcase #3 (AdHouse)
“Glenn Ganges in ‘Pulverize,’” by Kevin Huizenga, in Ganges #2 (Fantagraphics)
“Murder He Wrote,” by Ian Boothby, Nina Matsumoto, and Andrew Pepoy, in The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror #14 (Bongo)
For non-comic book geeks: the Eisner Awards is sort of like the Academy Awards of comic books.
Fun fact: the writer of the story, Ian Boothby, is from Vancouver just like me.
This is pretty incredible news and I definitely wasn’t expecting it.
ETA: Here’s an Anime News Network article on all nominated manga, including Murder He Wrote.
