IDW Publishing, an award-winning publisher of graphic novels and books, is proud to accept an astounding four 2010 Harvey Awards, presented at Baltimore Comic Con this past weekend. IDW’s highly-praised reprint collection, THE ROCKETEER won three categories, making it one of the most lauded books of the awards, while Darwyn Cooke won the coveted “Best Cartoonist” award for his adaptation, THE HUNTER, continuing its awards sweep.
“To work on books like these, with such incredible talents, is a joy in itself,” said IDW Special Projects Editor Scott Dunbier. “To be fortunate enough to have those books recognized by your peers and win awards? It’s really very gratifying.”
THE ROCKETEER, featuring creator Dave Stevens’ entire The Rocketeer and The Rocketeer: Cliff’s New York Adventure, was honored as the “Best Domestic Reprint Project” and also received the “Special Award for Excellence in Presentation.” Laura Martin, who expertly recolored every page, was also honored as “Best Colorist” for her work on the project.
Creator Darwyn Cooke was honored as “Best Cartoonist” for THE HUNTER, an adaptation of Richard Stark’s PARKER series. Cooke’s second installment in the PARKER series, THE OUTFIT, will be available on October 6, 2010.
The Harvey Awards are named in honor of the late Harvey Kurtzman, one of the industry’s most innovative talents, and recognize outstanding work in comics and sequential art. Nominees and winners are voted on by anyone involved in the creative process of comics.
