The 2006 Harvey Awards were presented last night at the Baltimore Comic-con. The ceremony went off smoothly, although only a few of the winners were present, including Alex Robinson and Vertical’s Anne Ishii, who delivered a saucy joke about LOST GIRLS in her acceptance speech. We’ll have some more observations later, but while we have internet access, here are the winners:

  1. BEST ARTIST
    J.H. Williams III / PROMETHEA / ABC/WildStorm/DC Comics

    Wasn’t Promethea finsihed before the last year? I mean, JH has done a bunch of nice work this year, and deserves the award.

    BEST NEW TALENT – TIE
    R. Kikuo Johnson / NIGHT FISHER / Fantagraphics Books
    Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa / MARVEL KNIGHTS FOUR / Marvel Comics

    Hasn’t Aguirre-Sacasa been writing for Marvel for like 3 years now? Not exactly “new”.

    -Steve!

  2. Nice one, Todd.

    I’ve read most of these books too. Scary. I have a J.H. Williams original piece of art in my bedroom. It’s a two page spread that’s partly colored in with colored pencils. He’s the real deal, and deserves his shiny award.
