The 2012 Harvey Awards were given out on Saturday night at the Baltimore Comic-Con. The big winner was the superhero favorite DAREDEVIL with four wins for Best Series, Best New Series, Best Inker and Best Writer. Kate Beaton won three, with Best Online Comics Work, the Special Award for Humor, and Best Cartoonist. Jim Henson’s TALE OF SAND by Ramon Perez, also won two, Best Original Graphic Album and Best Story.

All the winners and Beaton’s reaction below:Beaton wasn’t there to pick up her awards, but responded to the win on her tumblr:

Every comics award is done in different ways, nominated and judged by different groups of people.  The Harveys have the distinction, to my knowledge, of being the only award where nominations are made and judged solely by professionals within the comics industry itself.  It is the ultimate recognition by your peers, those who know your craft better than anyone.  I feel like I have not mentioned much about being nominated this year or the last because I am wary of the appearance of campaigning, and I think Canadians are born with a natural urge to bury achievements under the rug.  But, it doesn’t mean I am not grateful.  To have won these awards is touching, and reaffirming, and I was not expecting so much faith in my work, but I thank you for your votes and your confidence.  God knows, I am not the greatest cartoonist drawing breath at the moment, but I will try to always improve, and produce the best work I am capable of.  I hope that I live up to your present opinion in further endeavors.

  1. Dave Aikins says:

    I had the pleasure of talking briefly to Joe Rivera this weekend at the con. As someone who’s Father is also an artist, it was so cool to see him with his son at the Baltimore show, and to see his fantastic work in Daredevil. Now I want to see his motorcycles!!! Congrats to all the winners!

  2. I’m happy to see Vera Brosgol and Anya’s Ghost pick up another award. Definitely one of the highlights of the year in OGNs.

  3. I enjoy the current Daredevil run but it’s hardly a new series.

  4. LobsterAfternoon says:

    Ron – it had a new issue 1 like a year ago. It’s a new series. Old character, certainly, but a new series.

  5. I know, I have it.

    Still, I disagree. New should be reserved for titles that haven’t been in and out of print for the past 40-ish years.

Speak Your Mind
