The Eisner Awards – the comics’ version of the Oscars or Emmys – are given out at San Diego Comic-Con. They cover every aspect of comics – pencilling, inking, editing, anthologies and collections, cover art – and generally speaking, if you reead Eisner winning titles, you’re reading material on a par with any writing award out there.
The 2014 Eisner Award Nominations have been announced and include titles as diverse as Marvel’s Hawkeye to Dark Horse’s 47 Ronin, from Little, Brown’s The Encyclopedia of Early Earth to Top Shelf’s March (Book One). The complete list of nominees follows the jump. Check ‘em out.

Night Shift premieres on NBC Tuesday, May 27th (10/9)
Ranma ½ is a genre-busting, subversive manga/anime that features a boy who changes into a girl when splashed with cold water; his father, who becomes a panda under the same circumstances; an arranged engagement between the gender-fluid youth and the daughter of the owner of a martial arts dojo and more spoofs of martial arts and romance genres than one could ever expect from a single series.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the most beloved sequences in X-Men comics history and a potentially brilliant premise for an X-Men movie. Between the cast, director and teasers for the film, it seems like it could be the best of the X-Men movies.
The final trailer for the Bryan Singer movie has just been released and it does look good – starting with Logan/Wolverine trying to persuade the young Charles Xavier that he’s been sent from the future to prevent a Sentinel-based apocalypse. Among other delights, we get our first really good look at the X-Men version of Quicksilver and the touching (in a completely different sense of the word) Xavier/Eric Lensherr reunion. Check it out after the jump.
