The 2014 Eisner Awards for Best Digital/Webcomic Comics are announced and… oh, *#%@!!! It’s The Oatmeal

So the 2014 Eisner noms were announced today. My new employer, Robot 6, did not make it into the Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism category this year (though parent company Comic Book Resources did). Hopefully my coverage of webcomics will be enough to tip the scale next time the awards are considered.


Anyway, you know what you’re here for. What are the nominees for Best Online Comic this year, El Santo? Well, glad you asked. First of all, it’s now called “Best Digital/Webcomic.” Make up your mind, Eisners! Second, the awards are a pretty dang eclectic mix… and there’s only one here that I recognize.

Incidentally, the Sugarshock-o-Meter is starting to gain sentience, question its existence and purpose in life. Stay Calm and carry on, Sugarshock-o-Meter!

In other news, The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks is up form Best Publication for Kids (ages 8-12) and Best Humor Publication.


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. Wow… really don’t like the website format for Failing Sky.

    • The irony there is that the format is probably part of what earned it a nomination.

      Though it would be better if each page loaded centered on the spot you were meant to begin looking at, rather than top and center of the webpage.

  2. The Oatmeal hasn’t even done that much in the past year, has it?

  3. Whisky Tango Foxtrot

    Superhero Girl hasn’t updated in almost two years. How is it up for anything?

    • Its awards are for the collected print edition, which means that it would have likely been ignored had it not been printed on the pressed pulp of deceased vegetation.

  4. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your weblog.
    You have some really good posts and I believe I would be a
    good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load
    off, I’d really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to
    mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Regards!

  5. If some onne wants to be updated with most up-to-date technologies then he must be
    go to see this web site and be uup to date all the time.

  6. Hello my friend! I want to say that this article is awesome, great written and include almost all vital infos.

  7. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your efforts and
    I will be waiting for your next write ups thank you once again.

  8. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this
    blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if
    it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  9. Dax is a cool cat and a great artist. I’m delighted to see Failing Sky on the list.

  10. There are a number of very good mobile casinos that are run by some of the biggest online casino brands, as they are of the greatest standards located on the net, so you
    would not have to think too much about the level of security
    or support of these websites. This classic adventure is one of the all time best pirate games.
    Now a beautiful map is one thing but how does it
