Carla Speed McNeil’s Finder: Voice wins LA Times Book Prize

From "Finder: Voice," by Carla Speed McNeil

Finder: Voice, the latest volume of Carla Speed McNeil‘s celebrated science fiction series, has won the prestigious Los Angeles Times Book Prize, edging out such contenders in the graphic novel category as Jim Woodring’s Congress of the Animals and Dave McKean’s Celluloid.

The 32nd annual awards were presented Friday on the eve of the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. This is only the third year for the graphic novel category; previous winners are David Mazzucchelli’s Asterios Polyp and Adam Hines’ Duncan the Wonder Dog: Show One.

Published in February 2011 by Dark Horse, Voice collects the Eisner Award-winning 2008 arc of Finder, McNeil’s long-running print comic turned webcomic, described by her as “aboriginal science fiction.”



Awesome! I really enjoyed the book. When I finished it all I wanted was more. Not that it left me hanging. I just didn’t want to say goodbye.

I’ve read the first collected library volume. It gets really absorbing. Have read all of the Third World stuff in DHP too. Good comics. I’ll have to check out Vol 2 and Voice ASAP. Checked out McNeil’s website once and the original cover painting to the first library collection was available. Reasonable too. Thought about it…
