TOM KING wins Eisner Award for Best Writer

Tom King

We here at GYCO would like to extend a huge congratulations to DC Comics writer Tom King who has picked up the Eisner Awards for Best Writer.

He wins the award for his work on Batman, Mister Miracle and, of course, Heroes in Crisis.

King’s work has been controversial of late with making failing to engage with his wedding between Batman and Catwoman or the attempted exploration of mental health issues explored in Heroes in Crisis. I’ve enjoyed both series although neither has been perfect.

But certainly King is one of the best writers in the industry right now and well deserving of the award. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us next year with his Batman/Catwoman maxi-series.

Congratulations Tom!
