We're thrilled with the news that The Best of Simon & Kirby has received two Harvey Award nominations for BEST DOMESTIC REPRINT PROJECT and BEST BIOGRAPHICAL, HISTORICAL OR JOURNALISTIC PRESENTATION
Here is editor Steve Saffel's reaction on hearing the news:
"It's been an amazing year for The Best of Simon and Kirby. First we were nominated for the Eisner Award--in essence, the Oscars of the comics industry, awarded at the San Diego ComicCon International. And now we've been nominated in two categories of the Harvey Awards--"Best Domestic Reprint Project" and "Best Biographical, Historical, or Journalistic Presentation." If the Eisners are the Oscars, then I suppose the Harveys are the Emmys (or maybe the BAFTA Awards). We're in the company of giants--Harvey Kurtzman, Alex Raymond, Art Spiegelman, and more. There's no way to predict what's going to happen, but it's an amazing journey along the way!"
