Some nice news came in today – my book ‘Cold Mountain’ is in the shortlist for an award in China:
‘China Animation and Comic Competition – The 12th Golden Dragon Award.’
In the category: ‘Best Overseas Comic’.
I worked on ‘Cold Mountain:a graphic novel’ with Japanese artist Akiko Shimojima. The award is an annual one for animation and comics in China, and has been running since 2004. They have one section for international books not made in China. With the award ceremony for the final winner being held on the 29th of this month in the big city of Guangzhou (near Hong Kong). We’ve been invited to go over for that, but it’s a bit short notice (anyone I know live near Guangzhou that could go on our behalf?).
Anyway, it’s nice to be in the shortlist, and let’s hope it wins!
