In the category of: 'No 15. Best Adaptation from Another Medium'
This is my first time to get nominated for an Eisner (though I got a Harvey Award nomination once already, which is perhaps the 2nd best one to get, but the Eisner is probably the top award in the USA for comics/graphic novels). I'm very pleased!
