The Eisners are, to be a bit cliche, the Oscars of the American comics world: they're prestigious and the process of selecting them is often debated. But this year, manga fanatics and comic connoisseurs alike will be happy to know that Yoshihiro Tatsumi has been nominated to enter the Eisner Hall of Fame.
Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame-- named, of course, for comicker Will Eisner, who you probably know best for The Spirit --will only be entering four people from a list of 13 nominees into the Hall of Fame this year, but industry members (not including press, sadly) can vote online to try and help Tatsumi enter. Or, you know, for someone else. (Jerks.)
