The Will Eisner Comic Industry Award, commonly known as the Eisner Award, is a prize given for creative achievement in American comic books. Established in 1987 and first conferred in 1988, it is named in honor of the pioneering writer and artist Will Eisner, who regularly participated in the award ceremony until his death in 2005, and was included in the comics industry's Hall of Fame. The Eisner Award was created in response to the discontinuation of the Kirby Awards after 1987.

Each category is nominated by a five-member panel, voted on by comic-book professionals, and presented at the annual Comic-Con International convention held in San Diego, California, usually in July or August. Jackie Estrada has been the award administrator since 1990.
