Happy News!
Kati Kovács' KAMILEE'S LABYRINTH has been nominated for the Graphic Novel Finlandia Prize!

The jury has presented the following grounds for the nomination: "Absurd scenarios and compositions are Kati Kovács trademark, and Kamilee's Labyrinth continues in this vein. The basic setup of the graphic novel is out of the ordinary, and it is fun to follow the romantic mystery of the story through the eyes of the deaf protagonist. Kamilee's Labyrinth is a timeless, independent and unique graphic novel about family, love and everything in-between."

Congratulations Kati!
