The Harvey Awards 2009 Nominees


Here they are the Nominees for the 2009 Harvey Awards. The ceremony will be held at the 2009 Baltimore Comic Con this October. This year I’m going to make a better effort to check out the works of some of the nominees that I’m not familiar with. I’m glad to see All Star Superman getting props, I enjoyed that limited series a great deal. Check out the trade paper backs if you missed the monthly issues.

Congrats to all the nominees!
