Nate Powell picks up an Ignatz nomination!
August 26, 2009
Rising superstar Nate Powell, whose Swallow Me Whole was previously awarded "Best Debut" in the 2008 Ignatz Awards (for the best book to debut at the 2008 SPX), has just been announced as a nominee for Best Artist in the 2009 Ignatz Awards, to be held at the 2009 SPX in Bethesda, MD from September 26-27. This marks the latest in a string of honors for Nate and Swallow Me Whole, which most recently received the Will Eisner Award for Best New Graphic Novel in July.
We offer loud congratulations to Nate and to all the Ignatz nominees, and we hope you're all looking forward to SPX! We at Top Shelf certainly are.
