Tamaki, Rilly and Foster-Dimino lead Ignatz Awards slate

The nominees have been announced for the 2015 Ignatz Awards, featuring a diverse lineup of creators that’s more than half women. The 2015 field is led by Sophia Foster-Dimino, Jillian Tamaki and Ethan Rilly, who received three noss each.

Presented annually at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland, the awards are named in honor of the brick-wielding mouse in George Herriman’s Krazy Kat strip, and recognize achievement in comics and cartooning. Nominees are selected by a panel of five cartoonists — this year it was Lamar Abrams, Cara Bean, Robyn Chapman, Sophie Goldstein and Corrine Mucha — and then voted on by SPX attendees.

The winners will be presented Saturday, Sept. 19, at SPX. Here’s the full list of nominees:
