The jurors also nominated 13 comics/cartooning figures for Hall of Fame consideration by online voters. They are:

Marjorie Henderson (“Marge”) Buell; Howard Cruse; Lee Falk; Bud Fisher; Bill Griffith; Al Jaffee; Jesse Marsh; Tarpe Mills; Thomas Nast; Gary Panter; Trina Robbins; Joe Sinnott and Jacques Tardi.

Online voting is open now to professionals in the comics industry. Four nominees will be inducted and honored in July at San Diego Comic-Con, when the Eisners ceremony will be held.

Writer/artist/visual storyteller Michael Cavna is creator of the "Comic Riffs" column and graphic-novel reviewer for The Post's Book World. He relishes sharp-eyed satire in most any form.
