Duncan the Wonder Dog wins Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize

25th March 2011

Adam Hines' book Duncan the Wonder Dog has won the inaugural Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize.

Named after deceased Chicagoan Lynd Kendall Ward, illustrator of some 200 adult and children's books, the award is sponsored by Penn State University Libraries and is administered by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book.

It is awarded to the best graphic novel, whether it is fiction or non-fiction, published in the previous calendar year by a citizen or resident of the US.

Hines said he was both 'pleased and flattered' that his book was chosen by the judges.

'I think it's a nice bit of continuity that the first Lynd Ward Prize is going to the work of another native Chicagoan,' he added.

Ward created a number of wordless novels, which were illustrated through the use of woodblock engravings, such as Mad Man's Drum, Wild Pilgrimage, God's Man, Prelude to a Million Years and Song without Words.
