Evans, Hasen and Moldoff Enter the Eisner Hall of Fame

The Eisner Awards


The Eisner Awards judges have selected publisher Orrin C. Evans and Golden Age artists Irwin Hasen and Sheldon Moldoff for induction this summer into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame.


The late  Orrin C. Evans edited and published the first all-black comic book, 1947′s All-Negro Comics. 

Irwin Hasen, who created the comic strip Dondi with Gus Edson, drew the Golden Age adventures of such heroes as Green Lantern, Wildcat, the Flash and the Justice Society.

The late Sheldon Moldoff co-created Batman characters Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, Bat-Mite and the original Batwoman and Bat-Girl. He also created one of my personal favorites, Sugar and Spike; which I think inspired Nickelodeon’s Rugrats.
