Good things from me on another front – I woke up to an excellent piece of news this morning: our AX book has been nominated for a HARVEY AWARD!
BEST AMERICAN EDITION OF FOREIGN MATERIAL –
AX: ALTERNATE MANGA, edited by Sean Michael Wilson and Mitsuhiro Asakawa, Top Shelf
“The Harvey Awards are one of the comic book industry’s oldest and most respected awards. The Harveys recognize outstanding achievements in over 20 categories…They are the only industry awards both nominated by and selected by the full body of comic book professionals.”
So, its very pleasing for us all that AX has been selected by comic book professionals, hopefully recognising the significant step forward it is in showing the work of individual, mature, experimental style manga artists from Japan. Past winners in this category include Lone Wolf and cub, Moebius, Akira and Persepolis – good company to be in!
Any comic book professionals who feel like voting for our AX book for the final winner can do so on the Harvey website below http://www.harveyawards.org/
