201102230151 Hereville nominated for a Nebula Award
Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America annually presents the Nebula Awards to the best in those genres. The complete list of nominations is here but we’ll mention two. Barry Deutsch’s HEREVILLE: HOW MIRKA GOT HER SWORD is nominated in the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy category. And SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD was nominated for the Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation.

It’s not a shock for a comic to be considered for a literary award these days, but we can’t find a previous Nebula nomination for a graphic story. Feel free to correct us in the comments. A tweet seeking information reminded us that WATCHMEN won a special Hugo Award in 1988, and those SF oriented awards added a Graphic Story category in 2009 (subsequently won by Phil and Kaja Foglio’s GIRL GENIUS.) SANDMAN won a World Fantasy Award, and SANDMAN: DREAM HUNTERS was nominated for a Hugo in 2000.

    Shaun Tan has won the World Fantasy Award for Best Artist twice, and the award for 2007 would cover “The Arrival”.

  2. Awesome! Hereville was great.

  3. Thanks for covering this! :-)

    Howard Chaykin was the first cartoonist to be nominated for a Nebula, for American Flagg.

    However, in my particular category — the Andre Norton Award — I think Hereville is the first comic book ever to be nominated.
