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, Bloomsbury
* Jaime Hernandez, The Love Bunglers, Fantagraphics
* Mana Neyestani, An Iranian Metamorphosis, Uncivilized Books
* Olivier Schrauwen, Arsene Schrauwen, Fantagraphics
* Mariko Tamaki (Author), Jillian Tamaki (Illustrator), This One Summer, First Second

Hope Larson presented.

Congratulations to Jaime Hernandez and to all of those nominated.
