  • Nate Powell's "Any Empire" was recently named one of Booklist's top 10 graphic novels of the year.

Well it looks like Nate Powell — Arkansas native, comic artist, musician — has done it again, "it" in this instance referring to the earning of serious critical praise. The Ignatz- and Eisner-Award winning artist's last work, 2011's Any Empire, has earned a big nod from Booklist, landing in its top 10 graphic novels list, alongside such notable doodling storytellers as Art Spiegelman and Daniel Clowes.

"Powell’s exceptional visual-storytelling gift transforms a potentially obvious antiwar parable into a ravishingly beautiful, emotionally resonant, thoughtful, and provocative work of art," wrote Booklist's Ray Olson.

Olson described Powell as "the most prodigiously talented graphic novelist of his late twenties-early thirties cohort."
