2013 Harvey Award Nominations announced — HAWKEYE and SAGA get seven each


201307151028.jpg
Because there is not enough to do today, the nominations for the 2013 Harvey Awards have just been announced.

Voting is taking place online—nominees are selected via online balloting as well. The winners will be announced at the Baltimore Comic-Con on September 7th.

There is always some agita about this or that voting block in the Harveys, and this year Archie seems to have gotten quite a few—as did Image’s THE REVIVAL—so no comment there.

There is also something called THE POSSUMS AT LARGE 10TH ANNIVERSARY CRAPTACULAR nominated, whose creator, Chad Lambert, has only a MySpace page to promote his Old School Comics. That is very, very old school.

But in a few categories the picks are more reflective of the most generally acclaimed books in a category than the Eisners. HAWKEYE and SAGA got seven each, and Fiona Staples even got nominated for Best Artist and Best Cover Artist.

And also, CURSED PIRATE GIRL got nominated for Special Award for Excellence in Presentation, which it richly, richly deserved.

Comments

  1. Saga already gets hella press (deservedly) but glad to see Revival getting a nomination for best new series. No nomination for Fatale or Manhattan Projects?

    Surprised Tales Designed To Thrizzle didn’t get a nomination in the Humor category.

  1. [...] The nominations for the 2013 Harvey Awards were announced recently, and we were honored and humbled to find our book, Once Upon a Time Machine, nominated in the category of Best Anthology. We have to thank everyone who has supported us in buying the book, reading it, spreading the word and, of course, nominating it. For many of us involved, Time Machine was our first published work – and it took a lot of time, sweat, learning, and love to put it out into the world. We have been consistently overjoyed with the response the book has gotten, and this nomination is a big deal and great validation for what we tried and continue trying to do in comics. [...]
