Named after Harvey Kurtzman and founded in 1988, the recognition is one of the comic book industry's oldest and most respected awards. The 'Harveys' recognize outstanding achievements in over 20 categories, ranging from Best Artist to the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame. They are the only industry awards both nominated by and selected by the full body of comic book professionals. Courtesy, M.D. Silverbrooke.
