‘Hawkeye’ and ‘Saga’ Lead The 2013 Harvey Award Nominations

Comics pros eligible to vote in the 2013 Harvey Awards now have a full list of final nominees to consider, and have until August 19 to cast their votes online. Marvel’s Hawkeye, by Matt Fraction, David Aja and others, and Image’s Saga, by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples and others, tied for the most nominations with seven each, including best writer, best artist and best single issue. Both books also earned nods for best new series and best continuing series.

Other multiple nominees included Image’s Revival, DC’s Batman, Marvel’s Daredevil, Archie Comics’ Archie, Bottled Lightning’s Only Living Boy, KaBOOM’s Adventure Time, Archaia’s Cow Boy, and IDW’s Locke and Key. Several of the graphic novels on ComicsAlliance’s list of the best comics of 2012, namely My Friend Dahmer, Parker: The Score, Building Stories and The Underwater Welder, are included in the Best Graphic Album – Original category. And one of our favorite books of the year, Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, is among the nominees for Best Biographical, Historical, or Journalistic Presentation.
