My favorite thing about Comic Con is the announcement of the Eisner Awards for the best work in graphic novels. Click here for the 2013 winners [or see the end of this post].
This year, the graphic novel community agreed with my 2012 best list. It was no contest as Chris Ware and his fantastically amazing Building Stories swept ever about every category its was eligible for.
But I also want to note Brian K. Vaughan who has been doing great work in the comic world for years. Saga is an exciting new series and more than deserving of its awards and his Y: The Last Man is among the best graphic novel series ever.
Below is the full list of winners. Congrats to all. And for you librarians out there, consider these winners and the full list of nominees for your collection development of your graphic novel collections. Even if you know nothing about collecting graphic novels, know that these are the best out there and should be considered for your collections.
