McKean, McNeil and Yokoyama Among Los Angeles Times Book Prize Nominees

The Los Angeles Times has released the list of nominees for its prestigious assortment of book prizes, including the finalists in the graphic novel category. Last year’s winner was Adam Hines’ Duncan the Wonder Dog: Show One, which was also ComicsAlliance’s pick for best comic book of 2010. This year’s nominees include Dave McKean’s Celluloid, Carla Speed McNeil’s Finder: Voice, and Yuichi Yokoyama’s Garden, all of which have been spotlighted here on CA. Given the crossover in taste, it’s fitting that CA Editor in Chief Laura Hudson is among the judges for this year’s graphic novel prize.

The full list of nominees can be read after the cut.

The 2011 Los Angeles Times Book Prizes will be presented on Friday, April 20, 2012, in a public ceremony in the Bovard Auditorium on the campus of USC. Tickets for the Book Prizes ceremony will be available for purchase at 10 a.m. Monday, March 26, and additional information will be posted to www.latimes.com/festivalofbooks.
