The Harvey Awards, which honors outstanding work in comics and sequential art, revealed its its list of nominations for this year’s awards on Thursday. This year’s awards include a new “Best Manga” category, along with five other new categories. The first nominees for “Best Manga” include:
In previous years, manga were nominated alongside other comics in the “Best American Edition of Foreign Material” category. The last manga to win the category was Hajime Isayama‘s Attack on Titan in 2014. One-Punch Man and Showa: A History of Japan (1953-1989) were nominated in 2016 but did not win.
“Best American Edition of Foreign Material” is no longer a category, though there is also a new category for “Best European Book.”
The Harvey Awards presented the first Harvey Awards International Spotlight award to manga artist Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail, Rave Master) last year.
Unlike the Eisner Awards and other awards in the North American comic book industry, the Harvey Awards are nominated and selected by the comic book professionals themselves. The Harvey Awards will be held in conjunction with New York Comic Con on October 5.
