Anime creator Hayao Miyazaki and manga artist Rumiko Takahashi have been nominated for induction into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame for 2014. The Eisner Awards are considered the comic book equivalent of the Oscars and the most important accolade for comic books and graphic novels in the United States. In celebration of these nominations, the Anime Club will have on display a special collection of their most popular works. During the March meeting, teens will watch Anime on the big screen and discuss everything from the art form, cultural context, mythology and history, to how it affects modern pop culture.
