It’s our time for award nominations it seems…
Two weeks ago my ‘Cold Mountain’ book with Japanese artist Akiko Shimojima got a nomination for the prestigious ‘Chinese Golden Dragon Award’ in China (an annual award for comics and animation there), in the category ‘Best Overseas Book’.
And now my book with Michiru Morikawa, ‘Lafcadio Hearn’s The Faceless Ghost and Other Macabre Tales’, has been nominated to be on the American Library Association’s list of recommended graphic novels for 2016. (‘Great Graphic Novels for Teens List from YALSA’).
Michiru and I have almost finished our book for NBM, called ‘Breaking the 10’, which will come out in summer 2016. Here are a couple of pages from it.
