Fantasy Eisnerball
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 9 Apr 2009 12:08 PM

Every year during the baseball season, when the All-Star teams are announced, some beat writer will put together a team of non All-Stars that could potentially rival the quality of the actual All-Stars. To that end, here's my non-Eisner Nominee Fanta Heavy Hitter starting line-up for 2009, with their non-nominated 2008 books in paretheses:

Gilbert Hernandez (Love & Rockets: New Stories #1)

Jaime Hernandez (Love & Rockets: New Stories #1)

Steve Ditko (or Blake Bell, for Strange & Stranger)

Michael Kupperman (Tales Designed to Thrizzle #4)

Bob Levin (Most Outrageous)

E.C. Segar (Popeye V. 3)

Tim Lane (Abandoned Cars)

Daniel Clowes (Ghost World: Special Edition)

Charles M. Schulz (Complete Peanuts)

Johnny Ryan (Angry Youth Comics #14)

Okay, so there's ten of 'em, but somebody's gotta pitch. I gotta stop there or I'll selfishly fill up the bench and bullpen with MOMEsters and Ignatz folk.
