“The War of the Worlds” wins the Rudolph Dirks Award

Very very happy today: I received the Rudolph Dirks Award for ‘Best Literary Adaption’ for my ‘War of the Worlds’ graphic novel!

The Rudolph Dirks Award is named after famous comic artist Rudolph Dirks (‘The Katzenjammer Kids‘) from the Golden Age of newspaper comics that I totally adore and that indeed were an inspiration for the visual concept of ‘War of the Worlds‘. So I‘m more than honored to be awarded this prize that is the german equivalent of the Eisner Award, itself being awarded annually at the San Diego Comic Con.
