If we weren’t Red Sox fans, we might say this is a “three-peat.” In our first three years, the Library of American Comics has been nominated six times for Eisner awards. Our initial release—Milton Caniff’s Terry and the Pirates—won as Best Archival Project.
This year, Bloom County and Bringing Up Father have each been nominated for Best Archival Project.
Bringing Up Father collects the most famous of George McManus’s storylines: the cross-country tour of 1939-1940. The book was edited by Bruce Canwell.
Bloom County Volume One begins the first comprehensive reprinting of Berkeley Breathed’s 1980s classic. The series is edited by Scott Dunbier.
