The SAGA of the 2013 Harvey Awards


BALTIMORE, MARYLAND SEPTEMBER 7, 2013: The 26th Annual Harvey Awards were presented tonight as part of the Baltimore Comic Con during a dinner at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. One title and its’ creative and art team ran away with most of the honors. While that’s a remarkable achievement, it’s a little disappointing that its’ dominance in the voting meant that several deserving books and creators had to settle for just being nominated. More details will follow, but here is the short list. (This is not the order of presentation, but the order in which most readers will have more interest.)
