Los Eisners- 2018
Over on High-Low, Rob Clough explains the nature of how the Eisner’s are awarded. It’s a convoluted process that lags behind history in terms of the culture that it reflects. It’s a solid system, but not perfect – Clough explains why:
I was happy to see so many women and people of color win Eisners this year, in unprecedented fashion. Indeed, Marjorie Liu, for example, was the first woman to ever win a Best Writer award. Taneka Stotts, Roxane Gay and Alitha Martinez became just the second, third and fourth black women to win Eisners, and Jackie Ormes became the first black woman in the Eisner Hall of Fame. Emil Ferris continued to rack up every award for My Favorite Thing Is Monsters. The slate this year was more skewed this year toward the mainstream than last year’s slate, when I was a juror, though it was still quite solid. However, when it came time for voting last year, the people who did the voting chose a lot of the same old things. This was really disappointing, but not surprising. This year, it was surprising to see who won, and I think it might represent a shift in those who are choosing to vote.

Being an Artist And Mother
Lauren Wienstein, The New Yorker
Wienstein’s piece about Paula Modersohn-Becker is up at the New Yorker. It’s a deft, natural and masterful reflection on motherhood and art history. In Rachel Masilamani’s words, “This says everything about mothering and art making.”
New York Review Comics anunció ayer que publicarán el libro de Frank Santoro, Pittsburgh, en 2019. POR FIN! Esto significa que el libro se verá impreso en inglés y mantendremos las mismas dimensiones que la edición francesa original de Éditions çà et là, como dios manda.
Y que piensan los criticos franceses? Pues les ha encanta este chef-accompli de Santoro.
Ahora falta encontrar una editorial en España o Latinoamérica que publiqueesta obra maestra…
