As Frank mentioned in an earlier post, it was a wonderful surprise to win an Eisner Award in the category of "Best Reality-Based Work" (in a tie with Joseph Lambert's "Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller").
Here's a photo of Frank and I with our trophies:
(The globes actually spin!)
We were so thrilled to receive this honor! There was an amazing group of graphic novels in the reality-based category, and all deserve mention here:
"A Chinese Life,"
by Li Kunwu and P. Ôtié (Self Made Hero),
"The Infinite Wait and Other Stories,"
by Julia Wertz (Koyama Press),
"Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo & Me,"
by Ellen Forney (Gotham Books),
"You’ll Never Know, Book 3: A Soldier’s Heart,"
by C. Tyler (Fantagraphics).
