D+Q Authors Win Ignatz Awards!
Last weekend (September 17th) the 2016 Ignatz Awards winners were announced at the annual Small Press Expo, held in Bethesda, MD. A celebration of outstanding achievement in comics and cartooning, the Ignatz (named after George Herriman's brick-wielding mouse) recognizes exceptional work that challenges popular notions of what comics can achieve, both as an art form and as a means of personal expression.
We are proud to announce that two of our wonderful D+Q authors took home awards! Congratulations once again to both Kate Beaton and Lisa Hanawalt, as well as fellow D+Q nominees Adrian Tomine and Nick Drnaso! These nominatons (and wins) could not be more deserved.
