Ignatz Awards for Jess Fink and Carolyn Nowak!

September 29, 2017

It was a good night to be a robot lover.

At the Small Press Expo earlier this month (as Top Shelf celebrated our 20th anniversary!), the Ignatz Awards went to all kinds of amazing indie cartoonists. But we were particularly proud to see two winners from the Top Shelf family:

Jess Fink won "Outstanding Series" for her erotic masterpiece of steampunk romance, Chester 5000. If you're new to the series (and over 18), there's no better time to pick up its two handsome hardcover volumes!

Carolyn Nowak won "Outstanding Story" for her charming, haunting graphic novella "Diana's Electric Tongue." As Publishers Weekly reported this week, Carolyn is coming to Top Shelf for Girl Town, a collection of her award-winning short stories coming next year!

Congrats to all the nominees and winners, and stay tuned for more on Girl Town!
