Last night at the Baltimore Comic-Con, the Harvey Awards – the industry’s oldest and most respected – were handed out for outstanding achievement in 20 different categories.Â It’s the morning after (or afternoon depending on what time zone you are in), and Major Spoilers has the rundown of the winners. The big winners of the night came from DC Comics, with All Star Superman bringing in three awards and The Perry Bible Fellowship bringing in two.Â Congrats go out to all the winners!
One of these days I would really love for this little site to win an Eisner Award – that would be a most awesome achievement.Â Until that day, congrats to Newsarama for winning the award in the Best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism, and congrats to everyone else who picked up one of these coveted awards last night.
