Missed It: Boumeries And Pope Hats Take Expozine Awards


Boumeries and Pope Hats #2 took home French- and English-language comics category prizes, respectively, at this year's Expozine Awards. This strikes me as something of an odd awards program in that the actual Montreal expo is held in November of every year, which is the occasion for the nominees to be assembled. I can't think of another awards program that works like this -- so much so that I hope I have that right.

The nominees by category were:

Bande Dessinée Francophone

* Le bestiaire des fruits by Zviane (Sylvie-Anne Ménard)
* The Best of Iris Vol. 2 by Iris (Iris Boudreau)
* Boni, volume one: Le bout de la carotte by Ian Fortin (Premières Lignes)
* Boumeries Vol. 1 by Boum (Samantha Leriche-Gionet) (self-published)
* Les cornichons éltrangers by Dimo Garcia (self-published)
* Pinkerton by François Samson-Dunlop and Alexandre Fontaine-Rousseau (Colosse)

English Comic

* Maidenheadlock by Rebecca Rosen (Le Dernier Cri)
* Pope Hats #2 by Ethan Rilly (AdHouse Books)
* "Untitled" by Mum Pittsburg by Connor Willumsen
* The Man Who Built Beirut by Andy Warner
* Melody On Stage by Sylvie Rancourt and Jacques Boivin (Éditions Melody)
* Collier’s Popular Press by David Collier, (Conundrum Press)
