Harvey Awards nominations

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The Harvey Awards nominations were announced today at www.harveyawards.org. They are held at the Baltimore ComicCon on September 8, 2007. I have only been vaguely aware of these awards, and did not realize the nominations and selections are made by comic book creators. To me, that adds a whole lot of credibility to the whole process. A little cut and paste for nominations:

BEST WRITER

• Ed Brubaker | DAREDEVIL | Marvel Comics

• Grant Morrison | ALL-STAR SUPERMAN | DC Comics

• Steve Murphy | UMBRA | Image Comics

• Don Rosa | UNCLE SCROOGE | Gemstone Publishing

• William Van Horn | WALT DISNEY COMICS & STORIES | Gemstone Publishing

• Brian K. Vaughn | Y: THE LAST MAN | DC/Vertigo

BEST ARTIST

• Brian Fies | MOM'S CANCER | Abrams

• Renee French | THE TICKING | Top Shelf

• Stuart Immonen | NEXTWAVE: AGENTS OF HATE | Marvel Comics

• Frank Quitely | ALL-STAR SUPERMAN | DC Comics

• Don Rosa | UNCLE SCROOGE | Gemstone Publishing

• William Van Horn | WALT DISNEY COMICS & STORIES | Gemstone Publishing

BEST NEW TALENT (Representative work listed)

• Lilli Carr é | TALES OF WOODSMAN PETE | Top Shelf

• Brian Fies | MOM'S CANCER | Abrams

• Alexa Kitchen | DRAWING COMICS IS EASY! (EXCEPT WHEN IT'S HARD) | DKP

• Matthew Loux | SIDESCROLLERS | Oni Press

• Stjepan Sejic | WITCHBLADE | Top Cow / Image

BEST NEW SERIES

• CIVIL WAR | Marvel Comics

• 52 | DC Comics

• NECROMANCER | Top Cow / Image

• THE SPIRIT | DC Comics

• WASTELAND | Oni Press

BEST CONTINUING OR LIMITED SERIES

• DAREDEVIL | Marvel Comics

• LOCAL | Oni Press

• THE SPIRIT | DC Comics

• UMBRA | Image Comics

• WALT DISNEY COMICS & STORIES | Gemstone Publishing


Obviously, I didn't list all of them, so you will need to go to their website to see other categories like: Best Cartoonist, Best Letterer, Best Inker, Best Colorist, Best Cover Artist and lots of others.

What I take away from this is: How great does Don Rosa have to be to get FIVE nominations for doing Uncle Scrooge, the Disney comic. Not to take away from the comics themselves or Don Rosa's work, but when I think of award nominated comics, those wouldn't be on the top of my list. However, after seeing this, I will be picking up a copy next time I see one. I appreciate excellence.

Obviously not a Cable and Deadpool nomination in there. How could it be when CABLE is in the damn mag,lol!

Are there any restrictions to the nominations "like one candidate per category per company?"

Still at the end of the day it is all about the books and these kind of gigs are always cool more due to the gathering of the comic book industry rather than for the awards themselves I reckon.
