Missed It: Jaime Hernandez Won Graphic Novel/Comics Category At LA Times Book
Jaime Hernandez won the Graphic Novel/Comics category at this years LA Times Book Festival
. Not only is Jaime's masterful work a deserving winner, he's a lifetime resident of the region.
That was a very strong category, with Jaime's work in the same nominated pool as Roz Chast's awards-winning juggernaut Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?
and the best work I read last year that was brand-new to me, Arsene Schrauwen
. All of the nominees were strong in their way.
Here's that category, with the winner in bold:
* Roz Chast, Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? A Memoir
* Jaime Hernandez, The Love Bunglers, Fantagraphics
* Mana Neyestani, An Iranian Metamorphosis
, Uncivilized Books
* Olivier Schrauwen, Arsene Schrauwen
* Mariko Tamaki (Author), Jillian Tamaki (Illustrator), This One Summer
, First Second
Hope Larson presented.
Congratulations to Jaime Hernandez and to all of those nominated.
