Some of My Friends Read Comics 087 – Hellboy: Krampusnacht and Hellboy/Beasts of Burden + Crisis 8


It’s Eisner season again! This year we took a look at the winner for best single issue, Hellboy: Krampusnacht.

But of course one issue’s not enough for us. We thought we’d also visit our old friends (and previous Eisner winners) Beasts of Burden in their team-up with Hellboy called Sacrifice before moving on to our continuing read of Crisis on Infinite Earths with issue #8. We’re two-thirds of the way through!

Some of My Friends Read Comics 034 – Paper Girls


And the Eisner for Best New Series goes to… PAPER GIRLS by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang!

We took a look at the first story arc in issues 1-5 and tried to piece together what we could from this bizarre time travel story. The room was pretty split as we tried to make the case for and against their Eisner win.

Some of My Friends Read Comics 033 – Past Eisner Award Winners


It’s our 2016 Eisner Pre-Show Spectacular! As we gear up for the awards, we take a look at three past winners of the “Best Single Issue” award. Astro City #4 from 1996, Tom Strong #1 from 2000, and Hawkeye #11 from 2014.

We also read one of this year’s nominees, Silver Surfer #11, and we would have read them all but indie comics can be hard to find sometimes!

We talk about all four of these very different stories and decide if they were indeed worthy of the coveted Eisner award. And we don’t agree!
