Congratulations to 2022 Eisner Hall of Fame Inductee, P. Craig Russell

Comic-Con International (Comic-Con) has announced that the Eisner Awards judges have selected six individuals to automatically be inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame for 2022. One of them in particular, P. Craig Russell, is near and dear to our hearts.

A graduate of the University of Cincinnati with a degree in painting, Philip Craig Russell has spent 50 years producing graphic novels, comic books, and illustrations. He entered the comics industry in 1972 as an assistant to artist Dan Adkins.

After establishing a name for himself at Marvel on Killraven, Dr. Strange, and Elric, Russell began working on more personal projects, becoming one of the pioneers in opening new vistas for comics with such adaptations of operas by Mozart (The Magic Flute), Strauss (Salome), and Wagner (The Ring of the Nibelung). Russell is also known for his Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde series and his graphic novel adaptations of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman: The Dream Hunters, Coraline, Murder Mysteries, and American Gods. His most recent project has been Gaiman’s Norse Mythology for Dark Horse.

Russell received an Inkpot Award in 1993 and has won several Harvey and Eisner awards. He has become known as an artist’s artist with his very refined pure line. His series of adaptations of the Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde has gone back to press many times and been translated in over 6 languages.
