Alan's War an NPR Best Graphic Novel of 2008

"Alan's War beautifully evokes how a mix of camaraderie, violence and the surrealism of a civilization coming apart turned many rank innocents into silent, restless dreamers."

Congratulations also to Josh Cotter and Skyscrapers of the Midwest (best jet-pack kittens ever!), Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly and Local (if you haven't seen it yet, the new hardcover collected edition is gorgeous), Yoshihiro Tatsumi and Goodbye (which presents a unique view of Japan for American readers), and Paul Pope and Heavy Liquid (one of his most fun psychedelic narratives yet).
