Hey gang! Some of you may have already seen the news on our social channels, but Comicazi won Best Comic Shop in Boston Magazine’s Best of 2017 poll! Winners were 100% selected by the community, so thank you so, SO much to everyone that voted for us. It means the world to us, honest.
We were honored to be nominated alongside our friends from Comicopia, Hub Comics, and New England Comics. If you happen to spot a copy of the printed magazine in the wild please grab one for us so we can proudly display it in the shop!
And as much as it’s a HUGE deal to win Best in Boston, wait ‘til you see the news below!
HOLY COW! Comicazi is nominated for the Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award! The Eisners are essentially the Oscars of the comics world, an opportunity for pros in the comic industry to recognize the best in the field. The Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award is an award created by Eisner himself, recognizing the best comic shops in the world!
We’re one of 19 retailers nominated from all around the world, including comic shops from across the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, France, Israel, and Portugal. Only one shop in Massachusetts has ever won this award, so it’s an enormous honor to receive this kind of recognition.
The finalists will be announced during the week of San Diego Comic-Con, and the winner will be announced as part of the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards on Friday July 21st.
Sincerely, THANK YOU to everyone that has helped us earn this distinction. The accolades are nice, but we wouldn’t be here without all of you coming out and picking up your books, digging for that one old toy, or hanging out at our community events. Thank you again for helping make Comicazi awesome!
