If, like a lot of us, you come to Comic-Con because it features the greatest gathering of comic book publishers and the largest amount of comics-oriented programming of any convention in the country, then you owe it to yourself to go to the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. This gala event, held in the beautiful Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel (directly opposite the Hall H end of the Convention Center) on Friday night, July 19, starting at 8:00 PM, features the very best of the comics industry, gathered together for an evening honoring the medium. Be the first to learn who is the best in comics, then take that newfound knowledge and shop the Exhibit Hall floor on Saturday, seeking out the winners! You don’t need a special ticket to attend the Eisner Awards, just wear your Comic-Con badge!
