Missed It: Cybils Honor Two Graphic Novels


I don't know how serious a thing the Children's And Young Adults Literary Bloggers is that they have an awards program, but the site looks nice and I'm all for hearing a bunch of different takes on the year just past in comics. It's also a little hard to break it down fully as to which category applies where, but it looks like in terms of comics there were two honored, in children's and young adults respectively: Barry Deutsch's Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite and the collected Templar from Jordan Mechner, LeUyen Pham and Alex Puvilland. What's additionally interesting is that it's a rare list where I can't recall either choice on any others -- I'm thinking the Deutsch probably is on someone's out there I've seen, but I know I haven't seen the Mechner/Pham/Puvilland because I've been looking for one. That is a deeply odd book, like a comics adaption of an early 1990s filming of a 1950s Disney script.
