Vivek Shraya and Ness Lee's Death Threat: Doug Wright Award finalist for best book
The Doug Wright Awards were founded in May 2005 as a means of casting light on the wide range of cartoonists and comic artists working across Canada. The country’s premier comic awards, The Wrights are named after Doug Wright (1917-1983) a cartoonist whose strip Doug Wrights Family (also known as Nipper) ran for more than 30 years across Canada and several other countries.
Death Threat, illustrated by Toronto artist Ness Lee, explores Vivek's response to vivid and disturbing transphobic hate mail from a stranger. The book, Vivek's fifth with Arsenal, is also shortlisted for a Lambda Literary Award for best LGBTQ comic.
