BEDA 2013.1 #19: Drewscape for Eisner!

If you have been on Twitter the past week, you would know that Singapore’s creative scene received an exciting piece of news. In short…


For those not in the know, the Eisner is short for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, sort of like THE AWARD to get in the comic industry. This award is given annually at the San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) and OMGOSH THIS IS EXCITING.

Drewscape’s story, “Moving Forward” was nominated for the Eisner Award for Best Short Story. This story was featured in his latest collection of comics, “Monsters, Miracles and Mayonnaise“, published by Epigram, and can be downloaded on the Singapore Memory Project. It’s definitely worth a read, using a seemingly mundane goal (getting a driver’s license) to ponder about life’s pressing questions (how are we really getting on with life? are we moving forward?).

So here’s all the best to Drewscape, you can find out more about him here, get more information on Monsters, Miracles and Mayonnaise, or look at the other nominees this year.

P/S – Okay, I’m just placing this note to go… YAY SINGAPORE COMICS!!!
