The Harvey Awards were presented on the Saturday evening of New York Comic Con. This was the second awards ceremony since the Harvey Awards program was rebooted and streamlined two years ago. This year’s Comics Industry Pioneer Award went to Maggie Thompson, who, together with her late husband Don Thompson, was the editor of the Comics Buyers Guide for many years.

Here’s the list of this year’s winners:
