NYCC 2019 Recap and Harvey Award Winners

Over the weekend, NYCC wrapped up. Here is a report on the east coast's largest comic con via PW.

You can go to the NYCC site to see more wrap up info, but for our purposes here in the library world, I wanted to point out the Harvey Awards.

Most library workers know about the Eisner Awards for Graphic Novels, but the Harvey's, while not given out in as many categories, are equally prestigious, and in many ways, since they are whole book focused, more useful to us in our day to day work.

Click here for the Harvey Awards website where you can learn about the award, view past winners by category, and see this year's nominees. 

They have not updated the site with the winners yet, but that's okay because the Hollywood reporter was on it:
Book of the Year: Hey Kiddo by Jarrett J. Krosoczka 
Digital Book of the Year: Check, Please by Ngozi Ukazu 
Best Children’s or Young Adult Book: Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki and Rosemary Valero-O’Connell (First Second) 
Best Manga: My Hero Academia by Kohei Horikoshi (VIZ Media) 
Best European Book: Waves by Ingrid Chabbert and Carole Maurel (Archaia) 
Best Comics Adaptation: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation, based on Spider-Man (Marvel Entertainment) 
Hall of Fame Inductees: Will Elder, Jack Davis, John Severin, Marie Severin, Ben Oda, Alison Bechdel, Mike Mignola 
Comics Industry Pioneer Award: Maggie Thompson
Please, though, go see the past winners and, especially, the full list of nominees here. The nominees list for "Book of the Year" [image below]-- all of those titles should be in your collections.

Finally, here is my reminder of how to use awards lists as a RA Tool.
