Your 2013 Cartoonist Studio Prize Awards Nominees

Slate Book Review and the Center For Cartoon Studies announced the nominees for their Cartoonist Studio Prize this morning. There are two categories; the prize winner will take home $1000. The lists were selected by Dan Kois (representing Slate); Nicole Georges (representing CCS) and Christopher Butcher (special guest judge). I don't agree with every choice on the list, but they seem super-solid in general and I'm impressed, for instance, that a book from earflier in the year like The Initiates and a book from later in the year like The Encyclopedia Of Early Earth were not ignored simply by virtue of when in the calendar year they were published.
