Blankets Wins ACBD Award


In news announced early today by sites such as Univers BD, Craig Thompson's Blankets won the critics' grand prize given out by the L'association des journalistes et critiques de la bande dessinee (ACBD) in France.

Thompson's book, distributed to English-language markets by original publisher Top Shelf and published for the French-language markets by Casterman as Blankets Manteau et Neige, had its place on the short list of finalists announced Tuesday. According to reports, Blankets was singled out from over 2000+ total albums eligible.

The second graphic novel from the Portland, Oregon resident Thompson, Blankets sold extremely well for publisher Top Shelf as a stand-along graphic novel. Thompson's latest is Carnet de Voyage.
