SDCC News:  For the first time since 2019, the Eisner Awards ceremony was held in person rather than online, as part of the return of Comic-Con International in San Diego. The ceremony was held on July 23.

Barry Windsor-Smith’s Monsters won the award for Best Graphic Novel – New, and his work on the book also garnered him the Eisners for Best Writer/Artist and Best Lettering. James Tynion IV took home the award for Best Writer for the second year in a row; his series The Nice House on the Lake, with artist Alvaro Martinez Bueno, won Best New Series; and his ongoing series Something Is Killing the Children, with artist Werther Dell’Edera, was tied for the Best Continuing Series award with Bitter Root, by David F. Walker, Chuck Brown, and Sanford Greene (which also won the same award in 2020).

Run, the sequel to the multi-award winning March, won the Eisner for Best Graphic Memoir.
