  1. That photo is of the famous “throne” incident, in which Jeff Smith and Kurt Busiek worked with me to have a throne hidden behind a curtain so they could bring it on stage for Will. They concocted the idea as a way to keep Will off his feet during the Eisner ceremony instead of spending a lot of time standing. But after posing for photos, Will never sat in it again!

  2. I had no idea that was Jeff! How times have changed!

    For the publishers: Please send your best books! As a judge Eisner’s in 2009 we got to see a lot of great books but we also knew there were a lot more that should have been submitted. If you’re a creator, push your publisher to get your book in and on time! Good luck to everyone!
