And the 2009 Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic goes to…

… Carla Speed MacNeil for Finder.


This is the first year I haven’t correctly called the Eisner winner. (I predicted Vs. would win back in May.) In my defense, I wasn’t overly familiar with any of the webcomics or creators beforehand, so I plead ignorance!

Finder was especially tricky, since there’s a large body of work that’s not online but which I imagine the Eisner judges were already familiar with. I mentioned that the available material looked kinda tacky. Finder fans set me straight and told me that this was but a small subset of the world that Ms. MacNeil crafted.

So, anyway, congratulations to Ms. MacNeil!

Meanwhile, I will drown my sorrows and lose my self in this tasteful picture of Aishwarya Rai in a clingly sweater.


About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. Um, could you provide a link to the comic please?

    • I put a link up. Tell me how it works out. The last time I put the link up, it didn’t actually work. It looks like Shadowline requires you to go to the site (, and then select the comic from the drop-down list. The link I posted is direct, but there’s a good chance it doesn’t work. I’d test it out, but the computer I’m on right now doesn’t do Flash very well. (Finder is presented on a Flash-enabled system similar to Zuda.)

  2. There seems to be more of this comic here.

    I haven’t read the entire comic and I’m sure it’s pretty good and deserved its Eisner and all that, but I reeeeally didn’t like the Flash interface. (More about that in my blog.)

  3. Neil Gaiman was the presenter of this category.

    If there’s anything I’m most proud of about my burgeoning professional comic book career, its that I made Neil Gaiman say “Space Mexican”.
