Top Shelf and NIGHT ANIMALS sweep Stumptown Awards nominations- now YOU pick the winners!
March 15, 2011
We're delighted to see Top Shelf so well represented at the 2011 Stumptown Awards, whose nominees were announced this morning! Among a ton of great books from publishers large and small, Top Shelf leads the pack with five nominations - not to mention many other nominations in the extended Top Shelf family!
Brecht Evens' spellbinding Night Animals is one of the most recognized books, with nominations in three categories: Best Artist, Best Colorist, and Best Publication Design. That ties him with Carla Speed McNeil's Finder and The Unsinkable Walker Bean by Top Shelf alumnus Aaron Renier, with three nominations each.
There are also nods for Stuart Immonen as Best Artist for the powerful Moving Pictures and the eye-opening Ax: A Collection of Alternative Manga, edited by Sean Michael Wilson, as Best Anthology.
We're proud to see several veterans of Top Shelf 2.0 nominated as well, including Aidan Koch, Michael Deforge, and Emi Lenox!
Hats off to all the nominees.
Now, friends, it's your turn. Out of these nominees, the winners are being determined by an online vote, so head over to the voting page and pick your favorites!
