[Harvey Awards]The 2002 Harvey Award nominees have been announced and the list of nominees this year is a varied one. From main stream fare like "100 Bullets," "Ruse" and "Alias" to indepent favorites like "Eightball," "Acme Novely Library" and the "Golem's Might Swing," the nominees represent a wide cross section of published work in 2001.

From the Web site:

Named after the late cartooning genius Harvey Kurtzman and founded in 1988, the Harveys are one of the industry's oldest and most respected awards. The nominee list (based on comics publications which shipped during the calendar year 2001) has been compiled by tallying nominating votes from ballots mailed to over 2,000 industry writers, artists, editors, and other professionals involved in the creative aspects of the comics industry.

Harvey Award winners will also be selected by comics' creative community through a Final Ballot. The Harveys are the only industry awards where both the nominees and winners are selected by the entire body of comic book professionals. Final Ballots are being mailed to the same professionals who received nominating ballots, with a voting deadline of April 10th.

This year's recipients will be honored at the 15th Annual Harvey Awards Banquet on Friday, April 26th (8:00 PM) at the Pittsburg Comicon. Evan Dorkin, the creator of "Milk & Cheese," "Eltingville" and "Dork!" will be the evening's Master of Ceremonies for the third consecutive year. Tony Millionaire, creator of "Maakies" and "Sock Monkey," will deliver the keynote address. Dorkin and Millionaire have each received Harvey nominations and awards in past years.
