Your 2016 LA Times Book Prize Nominees, Graphic Novel/Comics Category


Five comics were nominated in the graphic novel/comics category of the LA Times Book Prizes, released yesterday. They are:

* Sam Alden, New Construction: Two More Stories, Uncivlized Books
* Julian Hanshaw, Tim Ginger, Top Shelf Productions, an imprint of IDW Publishing
* Riad Sattouf, Arab of the Future: A Childhood in the Middle East, 1978-1984: A Graphic Memoir, Metropolitan Books
* Maggie Thrash, Honor Girl: A Graphic Memoir, Candlewick
* Carol Tyler, Soldier's Heart: The Campaign to Understand My WWII Veteran Father: A Daughter's Memoir (You'll Never Know), Fantagraphics

Those are all solid books, with the Riad Sattouf in particular receiving international recognition in various-language editions. The one I'm looking towards seeing how it might do is the Tyler, which I think is a titanic offering.

Congratulations to all nominees, their creators and the publishers that helped bring them to print.

A winner will be named in early April.
