A New Statue For The Harvey Awards 2018

Posted by September 27, 2018 Comment

This is what the longrunning comic industry Harvey Awards used to look like.

But with the debut of their appearance at New York Comic-Con this year, they now look like this.

And they will be far fewer in number this year, down from twenty-two awards to just six.

Named (and now modelled) after Harvey Kurtzman, the awards will be presented during New York Comic Con at a gala event on Friday, October 5th at Shop Studios (528 W 39th St).
