Comics "journalism" no longer has an Eisner awards category

Clownfish TV announces the Eisner awards are canning the comics news site category at their annual ceremonies:
Comic book ‘cancel pigs’ can officially mourn the loss of comic book journalism (that they CAUSED), as even the San Diego Comic-Con doesn’t think comic book news sites are important enough to be given their own category this year. There is much weeping and gnashing of teeth. And some are sad they can’t wear their best dress to the Eisners anymore.

Additional Context:
The 2024 Eisner Awards, a prestigious event in the comic book industry, have sparked controversy with their decision to eliminate the “Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism” category. This move has been met with dismay by many in the comics journalism community, as it represents a significant shift in how the Eisners, often referred to as the “Oscars” of the comic book world, recognize excellence in the field.
Except that they likely haven't in a long time. I vaguely recall they gave awards to Identity Crisis in 2005, and if such a vulgar comic is their choice for awards, then they can't be expected to do better in other categories either. To be sure, they've never taken an objective approach to how dumbed-down sites like CBR became over the years, and with that kind of superficial, unobjective approach made in journalism, it's no wonder there's no point in keeping a category for news reporting at the Eisners. But then, what's the use of the Eisners at this point either, if it turns out they don't want to give awards to right-wing artists?

For now, the cancellation of the journalism category at the Eisners is no loss. And it won't be when the awards committee closes down either. Comics journalism has long been plagued with leftism as much as loyalism to the establishment, and that's why it's best if they've canned the category.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
