Meskin Wrangles an Eisner!
This week the Will Eisner Awards judges selected Mort Meskin for automatic induction into the Eisner Hall of Fame. A handful of folks have worked to keep Mort's work from vanishing into the past, chief among them Jerry Robinson, Dylan Williams, Steven Brower and Ger Apeldoorn (who almost single-handedly filled the internet with Meskin content), nice that it's paid off. Also, mad props go to Fantagraphics for publishing Steven's terrific Meskin books. Go buy them, and then let's lobby the hell out of DC to print Vigilante and Johnny Quick collections. It's the year of Mort!
