Your 2012 Max And Moritz Prize Winners


The remainder of the Max And Moritz Prize winners were announced over the weekend at the Internationaler Comic Salon at Erlanger. Lorenzo Mattotti had been previously announced as the award's Lifetime Achievement winner. That awards program has been around since the mid-1980s, and awarded every two years when the festival was held.

Lifetime Achievement Award

Best German Comic Artist
* Isabel Kreitz

Best German Comic Book
* Packeis, Simon Schwartz (Avant-Verlag)

Best Student Comic Publication

Special Jury Prize
* Rossi Schreiber

Audience Award

I'm always happy to see Joe Sacco's magnificent Gaza work recognized, and Lorenzo Mattotti is a singular comics-maker. Past winners of lifetime achievement recognitions from the program include Carl Barks, Robert Crumb and Moebius.
