Eisner Awards Personal Favorite: 20th Century Boys



Probably amongst the best works I'm reading now 20th Century Boys is nominated in two categories, best Continuing Series and International Work-Asia. The creator Naoki Urasawa is nominated in best Writer/Artist category and his other title, Pluto is nominated in best limited series and also against 20th Century Boys in International Work-Asia.

You need to check out 20th Century Boys. It's a stirring science fiction series about a storybook made by childhood friends that becomes a guide book of sorts for a mysterious figure in the future who has created a group called the Friends.

I thought I was one of the only people enjoying this so much. The 20th Century Boys shows what a good story with good, quality artwork can provide. New bounds do not have to broken every day in comic books. Rather, provide something compelling for the reader and you can gain an audience.

Cheers!
