Harvey Awards Announces 2014 Nominees, Congratulations In Advance To ‘Hawkeye’ #11

Harvey Award Nominations, 2014

 

A nomination for a Harvey Award, named for legendary MAD Magazine cartoonist and editor Harvey Kurtzman, is unquestionably the most prestigious honor that has ever been bestowed on a comic book about NASCAR. Seriously. It happened in 2009 with NASCAR Heroes.

The Harvey Awards have released the list of this year’s nominees. As you might expect, the usual suspects like Hawkeye and Daredevil were honored, along with other nomination leaders Saga and Quantum and Woody. Archie, Valiant and Image all received a good amount of nominations, but it’s BOOM! Studios, along with its Archaia imprint, that earned the most recognition with 26 nominations; well more than any other publisher.

Also of note: Out of 22 categories, there was only one nomination for DC Comics, going to Danny Miki for his work inking Greg Capullo onĀ Batman, and no nominations for IDW Publishing, which is very surprising considering the several categories for design and presentation that the company’s Artist’s Edition volumes could justifiably sweep.
