Eisner, Kubert, Tardi Up for ACBD Prize

The Association des Critiques de Bande Dessinee (ACBD) has release its list of 15 albums in the running for this year's Prix de la Critique. Books on the list favored respected veterans and critical darlings: Joe Kubert's Yossel: 19 Avril 1943, Nicolas Crecy's Periode Glacaire, Will Eisner's Le Complot, Jacques Tardi's Le Petit Bleu de la Cote Ouest, and Naoki Urusawa's Monster T. 18.

This prize went to Casterman's French-language edition of Craig Thompson's Blankets in 2004, in my estimation the crown of a strong run of European stand-alone and festival awards which that book collected or for which it was nominated, picking up a lot of publicity along the way. The next stage for the award is a finalists' list of five, to be released in concurrence with the festival at Blois.
