As the Crow Flies, Melanie Gillman's online comic about a queer 13-year-old girl stuck at an all-white Christian youth backpacking camp, is one of just 10 webcomics to be nominated for the Cartoonist Studio Prize. The $1000 prize is awarded by Slate Book Review and White River Junction's Center for Cartoon Studies. You can read the full list of nominees here.

Gillman, who now lives in Denver, Colo., is a graduate of CCS, where she received her MFA. The winner of both this prize and the same organizations' choice for best graphic novel of 2013 will be announced in March.

Gillman contributed to Seven Days' first-ever all-cartoon issue last July 3. At left is her self-portrait.
