Toth and Crosby Welcome Russ Manning! Four Eisner Nominations for LOAC!

We're pleased to announce that the Library of American Comics has received four Eisner Award nominations this year.

Genius, Illustrated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth received two nominations—one for Best Comics-Related Book and one for Best Publication Design. (The first book in the trilogy—Genius, Isolated—was previously nominated for an Eisner, and won the Harvey Award).

Percy Crosby's Skippy has garnered its second nomination for Best Archival Collection—Strips with this nod for Volume Two (Volume One was nominated last year).

Also nominated is the Best Archival Collection—Strips category is the first volume of Tarzan: The Russ Manning Newspaper Strips.

Thanks to the nominating committee!
