In the week leading up to the 2017 Will Eisner Awards voting deadline this Friday, the Comics Beat will feature a series of “For Your Consideration” posts highlighting a number of the nominees as a celebration of their well-deserved acknowledgement. We’ll feature some never-before-seen behind the scenes content and some of the books’ gorgeous interiors. We encourage all of our readers to check these titles out and all of the eligible comics industry members to vote for the titles they think best exemplify what make comics great.
“Good Boy” is nominated for the Eisner award for Best Short Story.
As King revealed in adorable Twitter post, “Good Boy” was inspired by his pupper, Roxy. Fingers crossed Roxy wasn’t quite as rambunctious as Ace is!
