Williams III and Cooke recognized with Eisner Awards! Frank Miller inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame!

Comic-Con International is the home of the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, the comics industry's version of the Oscars. 

The awards are named for Will Eisner and honor comics creators and their work in 30 distinct categories. Awards were handed out for best writer and artist, best new series and best single issue -- among many others. 

Tonight, at a ceremony at the Hilton Bayfront, the 27th annual Eisner Awards recognized artist J.H. Williams III for his work on Vertigo's now Eisner Award-winning comic book series THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE! They also recognized artist Darwyn Cooke for his incredible cover artwork for last December's DC Comics Darwyn Cooke Month Variant Covers.

The Russ Manning Newcomer Award went to Jorge Corona (WE ARE ROBIN) for his outstanding work on TEEN TITANS GO!

Also recognized was the legendary Frank Miller, who was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame tonight. Accepting on his behalf was DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee.

DC Entertainment is thrilled for Frank, J.H., Darwyn and Jorge and congratulates all the nominees and winners!
