The awards were given out last night in conjunction with the New York Comic Con.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2022 Harvey Awards, which were announced last night in conjunction with the New York Comic Con.
Pornsak Pichetshote and Alexandre Tefenkgi won the award for “book of the year,” as the first volume of The Good Asian beat out nine other nominees in a very stacked category. Lore Olympus was named digital book of the year, a category it also won last year. It wasn’t the only repeat winner, as Chainsaw Man by Tatsuki Fujimoto won again for “manga of the year.”
And the Disney+ show Ms. Marvel somehow beat out the Mind MGMT: The Psychic Espionage “Game” board game in what has to be considered one of the oddest showdowns in comics awards history.
As previously announced, the Harvey Awards also inducted four creators into their Hall of Fame: Neil Gaiman, Roy Thomas, Gilbert Shelton and Marge Buell.
The Harvey Awards were given out in the six categories they reintroduced in 2018, as chosen by a nominating committee of “diverse industry voices including creators, publishing professionals, retailers, educators and librarians.” The winners were chosen by creators and other industry professionals.
Congratulations to this year’s winners:

The nine-issue noir series starts in May.
Infidel writer Pornsak Pichetshote will partner up with Outpost Zero artist Alexandre Tefenkgi for The Good Asian, a nine-issue “noir” miniseries.
According to Image Comics, the miniseries will “explores race through a genre lens” and is scheduled to hit shelves in time for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
“The Good Asian isn’t just writing what I want to read—it’s writing what I want to exist: a story incorporating the Asian American history unacknowledged in textbooks to make a thriller that’s just as much about gangland murders, lust, and plot twists, as it is about immigration bans, police brutality, and Asian American identity,” Pichetshote told Comic Book Resources.
