Marvel: 1602 Volume I Wins Quill

imageMarvel's Elizabethan take on its superhero characters, 1602 Volume I, has won the inaugural Quill award in the graphic novel category. Writer Neil Gaiman speaks about hearing the news here. I'm kind of inured to the general fecklessness of such awards at this point, or I'd probably have something to say other than, "Huh. Okay."

Other nominees were American Splendor: Our Movie Year, Bone: One Volume Edition, In the Shadow of No Towers, and Persepolis 2.

Comics-related books in the humor category featuring Peanuts and New Yorker cartoons lost to the Jon Stewart juggernaut as expected. Here's some interesting news: the great Jules Feiffer will give out the Children's Book award on the broadcast to be televised later this month, joining presenters such as Brian Williams and Kim Cattrall.
