Today, Joyce Farmer announced at the Penn State Libraries talk on Underground comics that Jim Woodring's Fran is the next recipient for the Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize! Sponsored by Penn State University Libraries and administered by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book, an affiliate of the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress, the Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize is presented annually to the best graphic novel, fiction or non-fiction, published in the previous calendar year by a living U.S. or Canadian citizen or resident. Fran is the first Fantagraphics books to win the prize (a runner-up many times in the past) and we are just so ding-dang delighted that Jim will be honored. Check out the latest comic about the Multiverse and Frank's newest companion, the playful Fran.
