Webcomics slowly make more inroads into comic award programs each year. This year the Eisners has appointed Steve Conley to the judges panel. Conley, the creator of Astounding Space Thrills, and the owner of the Comicon.com website, has a foot firmly planted in online comics.
They’ve also appointed a comic store owner, a librarian, a writer from Variety and a writer from Entertainment Weekly.
So good news, bad news kind of thing….
