Comics Industry Legends honored at Harvey Awards in Baltimore

 

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND September 26 . . . Speeches and tributes extended the duration of The 28th Annual Harvey Awards well beyond midnight as several legends of the comics industry were honored and recognized for their many contributions to the art form.  The Harvey Awards are named after cartoonist, writer and editor Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993).  The Harvey Awards have been honoring excellence in the comics industry since 1988 and have been announced at a dinner ceremony during the Baltimore Comic Con for several years now. 

The legends being recognized during the awards included writer/artists Jules Feiffer and the late Will Eisner, who  both received the Harvey Kurtzman Hall of Fame award which recognizes cartoonists for significant, historic and cultural impact.  The Dick Giordano Hero Initiative Humanitarian of the Year Award was presented to Dennis Kitchen, a pioneer of underground comics and also founder of the CBLDF (Comic Book Legal Defense Fund).  Artist Russ Heath, Jr. was presented the Hero Initiative Lifetime Achievement Award.  Writer Vivek Tiwary (The Fifth Beatle) served as Master of Ceremonies for the Harvey Awards.
