The winners of the 2013 Harvey Awards were announced at the Baltimore Comic-Con, with Saga the big winner with a whopping 6 awards. Other winners include Hawkeye and the most recent volume of Blacksad: A Silent Hell.

Saga‘s six awards made Image the big winner on the night as well, but three creators on Marvel titles (Klaus Janson, David Aja and Dennis Hopeless) all took out trophies, with Fables the only DC family title honoured on the night.

Unlike the Eisner Awards, the Harvey Awards are selected “exclusively by Comic-Book creators, those who write, draw, ink, color, letter, design, edit or are involved in the creative aspect of comics.  Fans, retailers, distributors, and accounting personnel votes will not be counted.” They were named for Harvey Kurtzman, the founding editor and cartoonist of MAD magazine.
