Thoughts on the Cybils Winners

Cybils LogoI’m thrilled that the winners have been announced, but I can’t say I’m entirely thrilled with all the choices. I adored The Professor’s Daughter, which won the Teen Graphic Novel award, but I actually really disliked Artemis Fowl. I’m not saying it was a bad book, it wasn’t. It just wasn’t anything remarkable. I thought that it fell really far short of special while some of the others not only achieved that but went beyond. How it won is something of a mystery to me. Lucky for me, some of the judges are posting about their thoughts on the whole thing as well!

J. L. Bell over at Oz and Ends has a couple of posts starting the day the award was announced.

David Elzey has a great piece over at Fomagrams (and not just because he apparently agrees with me).

If I notice more judge comments from the graphic novel committee I’ll be sure and update this post! If you see more, let me know!
