Comic-Con International has announced the shortlists for the 2013 Eisner Awards, with Toronto’s Koyama Press and Montreal’s Drawn & Quarterly each receiving multiple nominations.

The fourth instalment of Koyama artist Michael DeForge’s comic series Lose is nominated for best single issue. Julia Wertz’s collection of graphic novellas, The Infinite Wait and Other Stories, is nominated for best reality-based work.

D&Q received three nominations this year, including best graphic album for Tom Gauld’s graphic novel, Goliath. Originally published in 1989 by the defunct Vortex Comics, Chester Brown’s Ed the Happy Clown is up for best graphic album reprint. Brecht Evens’ The Making of is shortlisted for best U.S. edition of international material.

Other Canadian nominees include Nova Scotia–based artist Darwyn Cooke, whose work on Richard Stark’s Parker: The Score (IDW) is up for best adaptation from another medium. Comics Versus Art (University of Toronto Press), an essay collection by University of Calgary professor Bart Beaty, is nominated for best educational/academic work.

The 25-year-old Eisner Awards celebrate the best in comics production and artistry. The shortlists are selected by a committee of judges, with winners (announced July 19 at San Diego Comic-Con) chosen by industry professionals.
