Anders Nilsen’s acclaimed BIG QUESTIONS has won the second Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize. The award recognizes the best graphic novel, fiction or non-fiction, by a living American and is 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 prize comes with $2,500, the two-volume set of Ward’s six novels published by the Library of America, and a commemorative plaque.

There were the runners up:
FREEWAY by Paul Kalesniko
HABIBI by Craig Thompson
LIFE WITH Mr. DANGEROUS by Paul Hornschemeier
ZAHRA’S PARADISE by Zahra’s Paradise by Amir and Khalil.

Last year’s winner, the first time the prize was given, was DUNCAN THE WONDER DOG.
