Marvel Dominates '06 Harvey Noms

image

The 2006 Harvey Awards nominations are in, and with 38 nods (39 if you count the syndicated Spider-Man strip) Marvel has won more nominations than anyone else, and, one guesses, potentially more nominations than they have in the Awards' previous ten years combined. The comic book Elk's Run came through in a big way with seven nominations, and the "Summer of Baobab" began with the Fantagraphics/Ignatz title scoring two. The Harveys use a open nomination process requiring people to write out or at least type a series of nominations for every category, which has always made the nominees list a potential voyage of discovery. This year is no exception.

The 2006 Harveys will be held in conjunction with Baltimore Comic-Con on September 9-10, with the ceremony itself on Saturday, September 9. The exact location has yet to be announced, but Kyle Baker will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

Final ballots are available here.
