Quote of the day | Terry Nantier, on NBM’s lack of Eisner nominations

by  in Comic News Comment

“I know this is an ill-advised post, I shouldn’t be doing this. Suck it up, and shut up like I do every year when the noms are announced and we get crums. Well this year, we didn’t even get crums, we got nuthin’! And my frustration level has just reached boiling point. How about Rick Geary’s Treasury? Trondheim’s Little Nothings? The Dungeon series? Kleid and Cinquegrani’s The Big Khan? Year of Loving Dangerously by the comic industry’s favorite punching bag Ted Rall (but also beautifully illustrated by Pablo Callejo)? All of these and most of our books get outsized recognition from the press, online and off, including the growing contingent of online comics reviewers. These aren’t worth honoring? A number of titles got multiple nominations. WHY? With so much good stuff out there worth nominating, how about spreading the wealth, guys? Who do we need to give sexual favors to to get the recognition we and our authors deserve? Huh?”
