DoomRocket has reported the 2015 Einser Award winners and, as Molly Jane Kremer put it, “a huge percentage of winners this year were ladies.”

Fiona Staples won best penciller/inker. Saga also won best ongoing series. Because of course.

Lumberjanes by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevenson and Brooke Allen takes home best teen book and best new series (!!!) so if you are not on this yet please note you are officially behind the times.


Jill Thompson and Evan Dorkin’s Beasts of Burden: Hunters and Gatherers won best single issue. Jill and Evan are quasi-legendary vets of the industry, and Beasts is amazing, so their victory is no surprise here.


Plenty of other greats got their due (Denis Kitchen inducted into the Hall of Fame, for example). So congratulations to everybody, winners and nominees.
