The Eisner Awards, considered by many to be "The Oscars" of comic book industry awards, unveiled their nominees for the 2010 ceremony today, honoring a number of key DCU titles and creators. The winners will be named at the San Diego Comic-Con International, the largest and oldest comic convention in the United States.
Let's check out the DCU nominees, shall we?
BATMAN: THE WIDENING GYRE concludes later this month, courtesy of writer Kevin Smith and artist Walt Flanagan, and is sure to feature a handful of surprises for not only Batman, but love interest Silver St. Cloud and a few others important to the Dark Knight. As we head toward the final issue, we figured a look at the final variant cover from artist Gene Ha was in order.
The latest arc by the creative team of writer Chris Yost and artist Marcus To races to its conclusion as Ra’s al Ghul’s endgame for Time Drake begins. The Men of Death are on the move in Gotham, and Red Robin, Batgirl and Prudence are out to stop them from killing everyone close to Bruce Wayne. But before our hero can face off against Ra’s, he has to throw down against a few familiar faces.
Grant Morrison and artist Andy Clarke continue to roll in the second part of the “Batman vs. Robin” arc, as the Dynamic Duo fight it out in the ultimate death duel. But what happens when Damian’s mother Talia sends out an old enemy to finish the job her young son couldn’t stomach?

We continue our spotlight on writer Grant Morrison and artists Frank Quitely and Philip Tan's BATMAN AND ROBIN: BATMAN REBORN Deluxe Edition this week with a look at the cover to issues #3-6, in the words of Grant.

Been enjoying FIRST WAVE, writer Brian Azzarello and artist Rags Morales' neo-noir adventure featuring Doc Savage, the Spirit and the Bat-Man? Good to hear.

Last week, we confirmed the big details: Neal Adams is returning to the Dark Knight for a 12-issue mini-series, BATMAN: ODYSSEY. We even had a cool piece of art to debut. But why stop there?
Writer Matthew Sturges and artist Freddie Williams II present a tale of the Injustice Society, as the villains find the All-Stars new headquarters.
