Phil LaMarr Hosts the 2020 “Virtual” Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards Ceremony

The 32nd annual Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards will be held as a virtual ceremony on tonight, from 7:00 to 8:00 PDT. The ceremony is hosted by voice actor Phil LaMarr, known for portraying Green Lantern in Justice League, Hermes Conrad in Futurama, and the title characters on both Samurai Jack and Static Shock. His film and TV acting credits include Pulp Fiction, Free Enterprise, Veep, Get Shorty, and Supergirl.

Named for the pioneering comics creator and graphic novelist Will Eisner, the Eisner Awards, considered the “Oscars” of the comic book industry, will be given out for works published in 2019. LaMarr will announce the nominees and winners in 31 of the categories, while beloved cartoonist Sergio Aragonés (Groo, MAD) will be presenting this year’s inductees to the Will Eisner Hall of Fame. In addition, Ruth Clampett will be announcing the recipients of the 2020 Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award, and Eisner Awards Administrator Jackie Estrada will open and close the ceremony.
