Your 2016 Comics-Category Dragon Awards Shortlisters


Locus Online has a post up pertaining to the shortlist pertaining to a new comics program, the Dragon Awards, which will be given out in conjunction with Labor Day mainstay comics show Dragon Con. I have no idea if they will be sexy awards or not, for that is the sexy con. To reflect their broad, genre-soaked base, most of these categories strike me as a breakdown of various prose approaches that pertain to imaginative fiction of the type Dragon Con fans are believed to love. That seems appropriate. Although the content of the graphic novels list strikes me as broad. Go figure.

The two comics-related categories and their shortlisted works are:


Best Comic Book
* Astro City
* Civil War II
* Daredevil
* DC Universe: Rebirth
* Ms. Marvel
* Providence
* Saga


Best Graphic Novel
* The Sandman: Overture, Neil Gaiman & J.H. Williams III (Vertigo)
* Chicago, Glenn Head (Fantagraphics)
* March: Book Two, John Lewis & Andrew Aydin & Nate Powell (Top Shelf Productions)
* Virgil, Steve Orlando & JD Faith & Chris Beckett & Tom Mauer (Image)
* Sacred Heart, Liz Suburbia (Fantagraphics)
* Killing and Dying, Adrian Tomine (Drawn & Quarterly)


Dragon Con 2016 is September 2-5.
