Eisner noms aside, this is a great list of - I’ve read a few! As long as AG is on your lists- I’m happy :)

In the Eisners’ partial defense, I’m pretty sure a lot of these comics aren’t submitted to them with any regularity— and they need to be submitted to qualify. You can argue that’s a flaw in the system, but it does mean that not all the comics on this list were exactly snubbed. Still, it’s a great list.

I spent most of this list going “Mmhm that’s right!” and then other parts of the list clicking links for comics I haven’t read yet so now I have a bunch of new comics to read. But also, I’m so glad Melanie Gillman is nominated for an Eisner. Basically, this is a gateway to a bunch of great comics.

She mentions that The Fox Sister takes place in Japan, which…ugh. It could be an honest mistake, but it’s obnoxious that people think any comic with asian characters is in Japan. The Fox Sister is in 1960s Korea, and involves korean folklore. That’s one of the things that makes it so cool. Any comic that involves history and folklore from a place that isn’t western Europe, Japan or white USA deserves a read.

Ugggh nooooo. I love Fox Sister. How can you mistake Korean for Japanese. x_x Fox spirits in East Asian cultures look similar but can vary a lot(namely how malicious they can be to humans >_>)

When ever someone in one of my non-art classes says I’m lucky that I don’t have to buy textbooks for art, I want to show them some of my art sale flyers I get where I can buy a set of watercolors for “only” $259. :|

And they don’t do textbook buyback on art supplies.

And then there’s the fact that I have to build my own canvasses and panels and that’s not cheap AND it’s hard work.

…Right now I’m being lazy and using a found surface for a painting project.
