L.A. Times Book Awards Nominees Announced


Congratulations to all the nominees for the graphic-novel category of the Los Angeles Times book awards! The nominations for all the book awards, to be given out at the Festival of Books on April 29, were just released. Graphic novels continue to take on a bigger and bigger presence at the festival, so it’s nice to see the works getting recognized in their own category. The nominees include Adam Hines, Duncan the Wonder Dog: Show One (Adhouse Books); Dash Shaw, Bodyworld (Pantheon); Karl Stevens, The Lodger (KSA Publishing); C. Tyler, You’ll Never Know, Book Two: Collateral Damage (Fantagraphics); and Jim Woodring, Weathercraft (Fantagraphics). Congratulations to all, especially Carol Tyler, who has always been a good friend of GNR and whose books deserve all the accolades and attention they receive. That’s a wonderful selection of books all nominated for this prize, so best of luck to everyone nominated.
