Glaeolia 2 Anthology and The Sky is Blue with a Single Cloud Manga Collection Nominated for 2021 Ignatz Awards

The Small Press Expo event has announced its nominees for the 2021 Ignatz Awards. Glacier Bay Books’ Glaeolia 2 collection of indie manga has been nominated in the “Outstanding Anthology” category.

Also nominated is Garo cartoonist Kuniko Tsurita’s The Sky is Blue with a Single Cloud manga collection in the “Outstanding Collection” category. Drawn & Quarterly released the collection with translation by Ryan Holmberg in July 2020.

The Ignatz Awards, which are named after the character in George Herriman’s seminal comic Krazy Kat, recognize “outstanding achievement in comics and cartooning.” A jury of cartoonists create a ballot every year, and then the attendees of Small Press Expo vote on the nominees. This year’s event is virtual, and will take place on September 18, 2021. The awards ceremony will take place at 8:00 p.m. EDT.
