Filipinos in the Eisner Awards

The official list of nominees for this year’s Eisner’s awards was released last Friday and for most of Pinoy comic book geeks, we were jumping up and down when we saw that Gerry Alanguilan’s ELMER was part of the list.

Gerry was quick to point out that other Pinoys were part of the list. Gerry also tweeted about all the other Pinoys that have been nominated and have won in past comic book awards.
