Announcing the Winners of the 2016 Cartoonist Studio Prize
Congratulations to our two winners, who each receive $1,000 and, of course, eternal glory, and join our previous winners: Richard McGuire and Winston Rowntree; Taiyo Matsumoto and Emily Carroll; and Noelle Stevenson and Chris Ware.
The winner of the Best Print Comic prize is Carol Tyler for her momentous Soldier’s Heart: The Campaign to Understand My WWII Veteran Father (Fantagraphics), a collection of Tyler’s three mournful, angry, beautiful memoirs about her dad, Chuck Tyler, his experiences on the European front in World War 2, and the PTSD—or “soldier’s heart”—that affected not just the rest of his life but his daughter Carol’s as well.
The winner of the Best Web Comic prize is Boulet for his characteristically witty and madcap comic, “I Want to Believe.” The French cartoonist is a three-time nominee in this category and this year came away with the prize.
