Brigid Alverson of Comic Book Resources’ “Robot 6” (and Eisner Awards judge) revealed her short list of 2011 comics that would have received Eisner nominations were it up to her alone.
We were very flattered to find SPONTANEOUS listed at the very top…
Best Limited Series
“One of my favorite series of 2011 was Spontaneous, by Brett Weldele and Joe Harris. It’s a great crypto-mystery about spontaneous human combustion, with a nerdy know-it-all played off against an aggressive reporter… I couldn’t put it down.”
SPONTANEOUS, of course, was last year’s Oni Press-released title by artist Brett Weldele and myself (now available in a gorgeous hardcover collection, as Oni is famous for producing).
Phenomenon, conspiracy or delusion? “Kelvin” Melvin Reyes was only three years old when Spontaneous Human Combustion took his father from him. He’s since devoted his life to exploring the mystery behind the phenomenon, searching for a pattern and predictors that he might save others from that same fiery fate. But the closer he gets to his goal, the further things lead down a well of secrets, horrors and terrible truths. Is SHC real? And, if so, can it be stopped?
