CAMPBELL, LEMIRE, CANNON nominated for HARVEY AWARDS!
July 12, 2010
The 2010 Harvey Award nominations have just been released -- and Top Shelf cartoonists are honored with nominations in four categories!
The irrepressible Kevin Cannon, called by Booklist "one of the comics world's most energetic storytellers," is up for Best New Talent for his thrilling debut graphic novel, Far Arden.
Next, rising superstar Jeff Lemire snags TWO nominations, one for Best Previously Published Graphic Album for his award-winning trilogy The Complete Essex County, praised by the New York Times as "a rich tapestry," and another nomination for his new title Sweet Tooth (DC/Vertigo) as Best New Series.
Finally, the revered Eddie Campbell, already the winner of two Harvey Awards for From Hell, is nominated in Best Single Issue or Story for "The Years Have Pants," the 40-page new story which rounds out his acclaimed collection Alec: The Years Have Pants, called by NPR "a major accomplishment in comics storytelling, and in storytelling, period."
All of these books have now been nominated for Harvey Awards as well as Eisner Awards, so if you haven't read them, you're missing out on some of the best comics in recent memory! Pick them up today, and come to the San Diego Comic-Con next weekend to meet Kevin Cannon and Jeff Lemire!
