Quill Award Nominees Announced

imageThe Complete Calvin and Hobbes has been nominated in the humor category of the 2006 Quill Awards. The Quills are a program supported by Reed Business Information and perhaps best known for having their show broadcast on network television. The graphic novel division offers up five comics: Alison Bechdel's Fun Home, Brian Fies' Mom's Cancer, Walter Mosley's Maximum Fantastic Four and Kohta Hirano's Hellsing. amd Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto. A Chris Claremont novelization of the latest X-Men movie had made the list but was removed. I wish that both Jack Kirby and Mosley had joined Stan Lee as Maximum Fantastic Four authors in the site listing, but the they don't even have the illustrators of the children's illustrated books category listed, so that's not a special snub.
