Big news everyone, RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE just got nominated for an EISNER Award!
Eisner Award modeled here by 2006 Winner OWLY--if you haven't checked out OWLY and you have very young readers, go to Amazon NOW and buy it. Adorable!
For those of you new to comics, the Eisners are "The Oscars of Comics." It's a giant honor, voted on by pros from the comics industry. Rapunzel is nominated in the "Best Publication For Teens/Tweens" category. Look at the fantastic company we're in:
Coraline, by Neil Gaiman, adapted by P. Craig Russell (HarperCollins Children's Books)
Crogan's Vengeance, by Chris Schweizer (Oni)
The Good Neighbors, Book 1: Kin, by Holly Black and Ted Naifeh (Scholastic Graphix)
Rapunzel's Revenge, by Shannon and Dean Hale and Nathan Hale (Bloomsbury Children's Books)

The awards will be announced in July at Comic-Con--so you guessed it, we're going to Comic-Con! I'll make sure to shoot a lot of photos for the blog. Great news! And to the nomination committee and Eisner Judges, THANK YOU!
