The winners of the 2013 LA Times Book Prizes have been announced and:
Sammy Harkham’s EVERYTHING TOGETHER: COLLECTED STORIES (PictureBox) won, beating out Alison Bechdel, Leela Corman, Spain Rodriguez, and even Chris Ware.
How could anything beat out Ware’s epochal BUILDING STORIES? Well, EVERYTHING TOGETHER is a truly excellent book, and Harkham’s work has more of an LA connection.
The prizes were presented on Friday. Occasional cartoonist Margaret Atwood was also presented with the 2012 Innovator’s Award.
