Harvey Awards Nominees Announced
We’re only a week out from the San Diego Comic Con and the announcement of the Eisners. However, as you may recall, there are two major comic awards announcements, and the second one — the Harveys — just announced their nominees. Here are the nominees for Best Online Comics Work (two of which — Battlepug and Delilah Dirk — are also nominated for Eisners):
Battlepug, Mike Norton
Bucko, Erika Moen And Jeff Parker
Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, Tony Cliff
Gronk, Katie Cook
Hark! A Vagrant, Kate Beaton
Kate Beaton is also nominated for “Special Award For Humor In Comics” and “Best Cartoonist” awards. Ms. Beaton won the Best Online Comics award last year for Hark! A Vagrant, and this being an open vote among comics professionals I don’t see why she wouldn’t repeat this year. (Perry Bible Fellowship, incidentally, won back to back awards in 2007 and 2008).
The awards ceremony will be held at the Baltimore Comi-Con on September 8.
