July 15th 2015: The best and brightest of the comic book industry gathered for the 27th annual Eisner Awards - the Comics Industry's equivalent of the Oscars.
The nominees, chosen by a blue-ribbon panel of judges, highlight the wide range of material being published in comics and graphic novel form today.
RainaTelgemeier walked away with the prestigious best writer/artist award for her bestsellingSisters.
The companion to RainaTelgemeier's #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling and Eisner Awardwinning
graphic memoir, SMILE.
Raina can't wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren't quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she's also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn't improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, something doesn't seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.
Raina uses her signature humor and charm in both present day narrative and perfectly placed flashbacks to tell the story of her relationship with her sister, which unfolds during the course of a road trip from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado.
