News of the Day

Kyle Baker will be the Master of Ceremonies for the Harvey Awards, to be held Saturday night, September 9, at the Baltimore Comic-Con.

The deadline for submitting nominations for the Harveys is March 3, so if you’re a comic creator, visit the awards link above for a ballot.

Plans for IDW Grimjack trades past volume 4 have been delayed.

In a followup to the bad news for Speakeasy earlier this week, Heroes Con has announced that Rosario Dawson will be a guest at their show in July. She will debut the comic she’s co-creating, Occult Crimes Taskforce, there.

The Eisner Awards Archives, a collection of the comics and graphic novels nominated for the award since 1992, will be housed at VCU in Richmond, VA as an addition to their Comic Arts Collection. I had no idea that was here in town! I wonder what their reading policies are.

    “I had no idea that was here in town! I wonder what their reading policies are.”

    “Special Collections and Archives is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 A.M. until 5 P.M. All other times are by appointment.”

    Presumably they operate like most library special collections & archives: you go to the reading room, request items that you’d like to see, and they’ll bring them out for you to read.

    More info about their collection is at

    Ah, you found it for me! Thank you. I tried poking around, but I obviously gave up too early.

    Johanna, You will need to call the Comic Arts Collection and see if they will let you do any reading of the material. My understanding from my students days there was the Collection is only available to people who can demonstrate they are doing research in the comic field. The Collection is not open to the general public for leisure reading. If this is wrong, please let me know.

    That’s a good point, Ed, but I suspect as a “noted comic journalist and scholar” (ha!) I could talk them into something. :)

    More significantly, I’m now wondering if I should talk to them about current and future donations.
