It is weird, getting this information was a lot harder than you would think, so since not many places are reporting the finalists, I figured it worthwhile to give the finalists their moment in the spotlight.
Here are the six finalists for the 2008 Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award (click on the store name to go to their website)!
Brave New World Comics - Santa Clarita, California (Atom! and Portlyn Freeman, owners) (This year's winner)

Congratulations to all the nominees!
