Menuda se ha montado con los últimos premios Harvey, Joe Keatinge explica en su blog:
Unlike the Eisner’s, the Harvey Awards nominations are not decided by a small, yet qualified committee. The nomination is process is, as stated on the award’s official website, “done solely through the votes cast by the comics professionals who choose to participate in the process.”
¿Les suena? Vamos, que Ahmadinejad no ha inventado nada. Personalmente soy partidartio del jurado, también para España. Dejaré que hable en favor de este argumento Travis Seitler, un ex-empleado de Gemstone (editorial de Steve Geppi, dueño del monopolio de distribución de tebeos Diamond):
For both 2007 and 2008, everyone at Gemstone Publishing was given pre-filled ballots (typically leaving one or two blank spaces for our own personal choices) to sign and send in. Nobody was required to submit the ballots (I didn’t either year; mostly because I was disgusted by the scheme), but I’m sure we still had two- or three-dozen nearly identical ballots sent for both of those years.
Como bien dice Tom Spurgeon en The Comics Reporter hay mejores maneras de honrar la memoria de Harvey Kurtzman.
