Junji Ito Takes Home Prizes for Remina and More at Eisner Awards


Junji Ito has been on a roll for a while now, and he’s seen even more success than ever in the English-speaking market of late. Now one of the premier masters of horror manga in Japan has been bestowed with further honors at this year’s Eisner Awards, which were announced during Comic-Con.

Ito won the Best U.S. Edition of International Material—Asia award for Remina—which features translation by Jocelyne Allen and was published by VIZ Media—as well as the Best Writer/Artist award for that same collection of short horror stories and his Venus in the Blind Spot collection. 

Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai also won two awards, one for Best Continuing Series and another for Best Lettering. Gene Luen Yang and Japanese team Gurihiru nabbed two awards for Superman Smashes the Klan—including Best Adaptation from Another Medium and Best Publication for Kids (9-12)—and Yang also received the Best Publication for Teens (13-17) award for Dragon Hoops.
