Robot 6 nominated for Eisner Award

eisner nomineeROBOT 6 is honored to be nominated for the 2013 Eisner Award for Best Comics-Related Publication/Journalism. We’re in excellent company, alongside Alter Ego, ComicsAlliance, The Comics Reporter and That’s stiff competition.

As anyone who visits the blog recognizes, it’s a group effort, the work of a dozen daily and weekly contributors: JK Parkin, Brigid Alverson, Chris Arrant, Corey Blake, Tom Bondurant, Carla Hoffman, Mark Kardwell, Chris Mautner, Michael May, J. Caleb Mozzocco, Tim O’Shea and myself. It’s a good team whose varied tastes and opinions help keep our coverage diverse.

However, ROBOT 6 is also the product of a larger site, Comic Book Resources, and many more people whose bylines rarely, if ever, appear on the blog, yet who help shape its content by contributing story ideas, offering advice and lending a hand when needed: Executive Producer Jonah Weiland, Senior Editor Stephen Gerding, News Editor Kiel Phegley, Reviews Editor Steve Sunu, Assistant Editor Rob Levin, Assistant Editor Andy Liegl, Lead Designer Matt Brett and the writers of Comic Book Resources, Brian Cronin and the staff of Comics Should Be Good, and the staff of Spinoff Online.

Thanks to everyone who makes ROBOT 6 possible, and to the Eisner judges for the recognition, and to you, our readers.



Congratulations, Robot 6!

Congrats to the whole team; it’s very much deserved!


Congratulations to everyone involved – still required reading!

It should also be noted that today is Kevin Melrose’s birthday. Happy birthday, Kevin! And congrats to the entire team.

Congratulations. Your team does great stuff.

YES! congratulations! well deserved!!

Credit where credit’s due! This recognition is well deserved. Congratulations and thank you for your efforts.

I’m shocked to see just how testosterone-filled Robot 6 actually is. Here’s hoping you’ll do something about the minor presence of female writers on Robot 6 and maybe one day you’ll actually be worthy of an Eisner. God bless.

Congratulations! You absolutely DESERVE it!

In Robot 6’s defense, if the testosterone level was a problem you wouldn’t be just now shocked by it. Maybe the Eisner awards are based on actual content.

I don’t think even the Robot 6 guys would like to use the Eisner as an excuse for the lack of females on their stuff. I just think they still need to improve on a lot of things and maybe in the future they’ll be nominated more often.
