Fifty. That's 50, just to make sure that the point is not lost. Fifty nominations for Valiant Comics. I almost expect that with Image, but the pack is being led by Valiant? I've liked what I've read from Valiant, but something doesn't seem right about this.
I don't know enough about the Harvey Awards to put this all in context, especially since I thought it was named after the other Harvey, not this one. If it's ballot manipulation by Valiant fans, as many suspect, that's not a good sign. I was already not likely to pay attention, and what seems like manipulation is not what will make me treat them like the Eisners.
The awards will be officially presented at Baltimore Comic-Con on September 3rd.
