Panter named 2007 American Book Award winner
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Gary Panterawards 29 Oct 2007 10:22 AM


The Before Columbus Foundation has announced that Jimbo's Inferno by Gary Panter (and published by Fantagraphics) has been selected as a winner of the twenty-eighth annual AMERICAN BOOK AWARDS for 2007. Congratulations, Gary!

The American Book Awards were created to provide recognition for outstanding literary achievement from the entire spectrum of America's diverse literary community. The purpose of the awards is to recognize literary excellence without limitations or restrictions.

This is the second Fantagraphics book to garner an ABA -- Joe Sacco's Palestine was a recipient in 1996, and the award at that time very much helped solidfy Palestine's place in the pantheon of great graphic novels. Here's hoping Panter's has a similar effect, I can't think of a more deserving artist.
