Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, is proud to announce the nomination of Meteor Men for the Award for Graphic Literature in the 2016 Oregon Book Awards.
Meteor Men by Jeff Parker and Sandy Jarrell with Kevin Volo is a story of adolescence, friendship, and hard decisions that begins on a summer night, when Alden Baylor sits in a field watching the largest meteor shower in human history. What begins as teenage adventure becomes something more—the celestial event brings travelers who will change the world completely, and Alden discovers a connection to one of them.
Fans may vote for the Readers’ Choice Award until Sunday April 5, 2016. The Oregon Book Awards and Fellowships honor the state’s finest accomplishments by Oregon writers who work in genres of poetry, fiction, drama, literary nonfiction, and literature for young readers. The Oregon Book Award winners will be announced at the 29th Annual Oregon Book Awards ceremony on April 11, 2016.
