IDW Publishing Bullies Eisners Into Getting Book Nominated

So that's the key to getting nominated.

The Eisner Award nominees were announced Tuesday and notably absent was The Outhouse for Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism. Also notably absent was Love Is Love for Best Anthology, which should've got the nomination according to IDW Publishing PR Manager Steven Scott.

This tweet was reposted to Facebook, where Eisner Award administrator Jackie Estrada explained why the book wasn't nominated.


Jackie stated that the Eisners go off Amazon listings to consider nominations, which explains why The Outhouse wasn't nominated for Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism as we're not listed on Amazon.

Then Steven gave Jackie a virtual swirlie by pointing out that the book was officially released on December 28. 

Lo and behold, that's all it took to get nominated.

The lesson to be learned here? Cause a public outrage until the Eisner Awards take notice. Consider that lesson learned for next year.
