Comics made it to the mountaintop.
It's an immense honor to announce that March: Book Three is the winner of the 2016 National Book Award for Young People's Literature, making it the first graphic novel ever to do so. Here's Top Shelf's press release regarding the achievement.
Comics have changed my life, and the lens through which I view and interact with the world, many times over. I'm proud to be the first cartoonist to break such a barrier, and we all want to welcome ALL readers to explore comics. Allow yourself to be transformed by them.
