Oh but look! Slate’s Cartoonist Studio Prize 2016 winners for 2016 have just been announced and they are Boulet and Carol Tyler.
Tyler won for Soldier’s Heart: The Campaign to Understand My WWII Veteran Father, which I was just lauding, a collection of her three volume memoir about her father, WWII vet Chuck Tyler, whose experiences there left lasting scars on generations of his family. Tyler is one of our great cartoonists, and this is her masterwork.
French webcomics genius Boulet won for “I Want to Believe” which you read right in the link for FREE. Good deal! It was his third nomination .
The winners (from a list of nominees that you should check out as well) were selected by Slate Book Review editor Dan Kois; CCS Fellow Noah Van Sciver; and guest judge, Caitlin McGurk.
