2012 Hugo Award Nominations For "Graphic Story" Announced

By Todd Allen

The Hugo Awards have been cool with comics for longer than most non-comics-specific awards, so this is far from a new award.  This year, Phil Foglio and Girl Genius are not on the ballot.  Foglio has been the only winner in the category, sweeping it since the Graphic Story’s inception in 2009.

The 2012 Nominees are:

Digger by Ursula Vernon (Sofawolf Press)
Fables Vol 15: Rose Red by Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham (Vertigo)
Locke & Key Volume 4, Keys to the Kingdom written by Joe Hill, illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez (IDW)
Schlock Mercenary: Force Multiplication written and illustrated by Howard Tayler, colors by Travis Walton (The Tayler Corporation)
The Unwritten (Volume 4): Leviathan created by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. Written by Mike Carey, illustrated by Peter Gross (Vertigo

It should be noted that Schlock Mercenary has been on the ballot every year since 2009.  Will webcomics continue to reign?  (In case you were wondering, Digger is also a webcomic.)

Speaking of webcomics, Mr. Randall Munroe (xkcd) is nominated in the “Fan Artist” category.  I’m curious how he happened to get classified as fan.
