Alex Robinson is never TOO COOL for a Harvey Award!
October 13, 2009
...in fact, he's exactly cool enough, according to the Harvey Awards committee and voters! This past weekend at the Baltimore Comic-Con, Alex was honored with the Harvey for Best Graphic Album - Original, for his latest book Too Cool to Be Forgotten.
The Harveys, which are nominated and elected by a ballot of comic professionals, have crossed paths with Alex before: Box Office Poison was nominated in 2001, and 2006 saw Tricked win the "Best Graphic Album" Harvey. He now has a second Harvey, which joins an Eisner, an Ignatz, and an Angoulême Prize for Best First Book, on Alex's crowded metaphorical mantel.
Congratulations to Alex and all the other Harvey winners!
