I was stunned when I heard the news that MARCH had been nominated for three Eisners.
Best Publication for Teens (ages 13-17)
Best Reality-Based Work
Nate Powell for Best Penciller/Inker or Penciller/Inker Team
There were so many incredible books put out this year. Being nominated alongside creators like Gene Luen Yang, Peter Bagge, and Paul Pope is such a thrill and honor. I wish I could go back and high five that little kid I once was who wore Batman socks jacked up to his knees on his first day of school. Tell him everything is going to be ok. Let the nerd flag fly.
Can't wait for San Diego this summer!
