Finder: Voice wins the LA Times Book Prize for Graphic Novel

201204230357.jpg
The LA Times handed out its book prizes at the LA Times Festival of Books this weekend, and the winner in the Graphic Novel category was Carla Speed McNeil for FINDER: VOICE. The other nominees were:
“I Will Bite You! And Other Stories” by Joseph Lambert (Secret Acres)
“Celluloid” by Dave McKean (Fantagraphics)
“Congress of the Animals” by Jim Woodring (Fantagraphics)
“Garden” by Yuichi Yokoyama (PictureBox)

Any one of these would have been a strong winner (previous winners in the category, which is in only its third year, were DUNCAN THE WONDER DOG and ASTERIOS POLYP), but the FINDER win is interesting because McNeil’s work isn’t usually included in accountings of literary comics, probably because of its genre trappings—there’s a lot of meat on those bones, however.
