Just thought about something regarding Cry for Justice and the Eisner award.
So, the Eisner is an award that goes for artsyness, for quality writing or drawing, right? Now, if we're really honest to ourselves: Do we, me included, maybe only see Cry for Justice as horrible because we know the characters and backstories?
I mean, if I try to see it as a standalone thing, I can see in a way how you could see this as good writing. So Green Lantern and Green Arrow talk about a threesome which puts down two well-established characters? If you don't regard those characters, which, if you just want to judge the mini alone, and not the whole universe, you have to do, then it doesn't have any meaning.
Liam Harper dies, okay? If you don't see it as just a justification for angst and emotions in other characters, thinks that happen outside of Justice, then you can see it as a realistic representation of how normal people suffer when super-powered beings meet.
In that regard, observing Cry for Justice on its own and not in an universe, something you have to do in the category it's nominated for, then I can see the nomination.
Just trying to be fair here >_>
Mind you, looking at the other nominees, even with the paramatres I've given, Robinson doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell to win this.
