Artists Dave Gibbons and Roz Chast will be inducted into The Harvey Awards Hall of Fame at the 30th awards ceremony on October 5 at New York Comic Con 2018. Additionally, the International Spotlight Awards will be presented to Harold Sakuishi and the inaugural Comics Industry Pioneer honor, to Jackie Estrada.
Hall of Fame inductee Dave Gibbons is best known for his work with Alan Moore on their seminal DC graphic novel Watchmen. Fittingly, it was at the very first Harvey Awards ceremony in 1988 that Gibbons and Moore won a slew of awards for the now-iconic superhero tale. The book went on to inform the comic book medium for years after its release and is still held in high regard today. Gibbons has also provided the art for countless other iconic comics in his time, including Green Lantern, Give Me Liberty and Kingsman.
