Heppy New Year!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Beastsawards 2 Jan 2008 8:11 AM
Happy new year, faithful floggers. I begin the new year with yet another "Best Of" list. You've no doubt had enough of them, these "Top Tens" and "Must Have" lists and checklists from hither and yon. I promise to not inundate you with the vast majority of such digital miscellany, but to our fellow cartoon publishers, I have but one question for you: How many of your books made the list of The Top Cryptozoology Books of 2007? Yeah, that's right, I'm talkin' to you. What's that? I can't hear you. Huh? Yeah, that's what I thought. You can shut up now.
Top 5s and 10s
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under PeanutsPaul Hornschemeierawards 10 Dec 2007 2:31 PM


More year-end accolades: New York Magazine has named Paul Hornschemeier's The Three Paradoxes one of its five Best Comics of 2007. Paul is the only American creator on the list (Japan, Israel and Australia are also represented), so hey, I guess that unofficially makes The Three Paradoxes the best American comic of the year! Congratulations, Paul!



Meanwhile, The Complete Peanuts 1963-64 makes it onto Time's Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2007 list. I don't know if the writer is the first to compare Snoopy's doghouse to the TARDIS, but if so, nicely done. We're honored to continue collecting Schulz's work.

Bardín the Unstoppable Awards Machine
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Maxawards 20 Nov 2007 1:32 PM
Via The Beat: Spanish artist Max has been awarded the first-ever Premio Nacional del Cómic 2007 (National Comics Award) by the Spanish Ministry of Culture for his book Bardín the Superrealist. This is the second major European comics award received by Bardín, and this one comes with a nice fat €15,000 prize. According to the Spanish Reuters article (as translated by Babelfish), "'the jury considers' Bardín the Superrealist 'a graphically overwhelming work, with an original script and filled with literary, philosophical and cinematographic references,' the ministry in an official notice said." Congratulations, Max!
Ellen Forney shares National Book Award
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Ellen Forneyawards 16 Nov 2007 10:01 AM
We were extremely pleased to learn that Ellen Forney and Sherman Alexie won a National Book Award for young people's literature for The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, written by Alexie and illustrated by Forney. Hearty congratulations!

You can congratulate Ellen in person tonight at Richard Hugo House, or, if you're patient and/or cheap, at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on February 9th at the opening of her exhibit "Lust," celebrating the release of her new book Lust: Kinky Online Personal Ads from Seattle's The Stranger. More details TBA.

Kudos for I Killed Adolf Hitler
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under JasonEllen Forneyawards 12 Nov 2007 12:25 PM


Publishers Weekly has named Jason's I Killed Adolf Hitler to their Best Books of 2007 list. They say:

"Hard-boiled hit men, a time machine and a quest to save the world add up to a story about the permanence of love in this darkly humorous tale."

Also on the list: Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, illustrated by our pal Ellen Forney, who is called out for her "witty cartoons."

Congratulations to all!







We're #3
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Peanutsclassicsawards 6 Nov 2007 12:32 PM
We are pleased to point out that Amazon.com has ranked The Complete Peanuts 1963-1966 Box Set at #3 on their list of Best Books of 2007 - Top 10 Editors Picks: Graphic Novels.

I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't suggest that you buy it directly from us. Amazon has us beat on price but they can't match the love.
