Tove Jansson up for Eisners
Tove Jansson is one of the nominees for the 2007 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards (the “comic book Oscars”) thanks to the Drawn & Quarterly hardback collection Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip Book One. The collection is up for the award in two categories, Best publication for a younger audience, and Best Archival Collection/Project—Strips.
The results will be announced on July 27 at the San Diego Comic Con. (Thanks to Jeff VanderMeer for the tip.)
