2008 Eisner Awards Nominations

Kind of like the Oscars for comic books, the Eisner Awards are given out annually to recognize greatness in the field of sequential art. This year's award ceremony takes place on July 25 at the San Diego Comic Con.

Among the nominees for this year's ceremony are several manga titles, including the English Language editions of Osamu Tezuka's Apollo's Song and MW.

There is a very diverse range of nominated works up for awards this year, with many different publishers and genres represented. These Tezuka classics are in some very good company, and it's great to see them, along with several other manga, getting recognized like this.

Take a look at the full list of nominees here on Publisher's Weekly. You can also specifically look at all of the manga that has been nominated this year on Manga Blog.
