Missed It: Your 2014 Oregon Book Award Graphic Literature Finalists

The Oregon Book Awards has announced its various finalists lists for 2014. There is a Pacific Northwest College Of Art Graphic Literature Award, and the finalists are:

* Barry Deustch, Portland, for Hereville: How Mirka Met A Meteorite (Abrams)
* Steve Duin And Shannon Wheeler, both of Portland, for Oil And Water (Fantagraphics)
* Natalie Nourigat, Portland, for Between Gears (Image)
* Joe Sacco, Portland, for Journalism (Metropolitan)
* Craig Thompson, Portland, for Habibi (Pantheon)

I'm not really sure how these are selected. It's worth noting that Habibi was a Fall 2011 book, which indicates there's either a broad amount of time covered or that these awards are going to working authors rather than recent works and these are just the works listed. At any rate, they're all admirable works and very much of that place, so good luck to each one.
