Congratulations to Gilbert Hernandez and Ulli Lust, whose respective books Julio's Day and Today Is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life have been nominated for the Slate and Center for Cartoon Studies Cartoonist Studio Prize for Best Graphic Novel of the Year! The judges call the two books "a deceptively simple story of one man's life from age 0 to 100, by the ever-inventive Gilbert Hernandez" and "Ulli Lust's fascinating, gritty memoir about German teens lost in Italy in 1984" and say that "each winner will receive $1,000 and, of course, eternal glory." Go, Beto & Ulli!
