Saturday night I was leaving my home to have dinner with some friends when I was surprised by a text message from an industry friend. It simply said, “Holy Shit! Congrats dude! ROBOT 6 won the Harvey!” That certainly was a big highlight of the weekend.
Thanks to everyone who voted for ROBOT 6 as Best Biographical, Historical or Journalistic Presentation. We have to acknowledge our fellow nominees as well: TwoMorrows Publishing for Jack Kirby Collector and Alter Ego Magazine, Team Cul De De Sac: Cartoonists Draw The Line At Parkinson’s from Andrews McMeel, and Sean Howe’s Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, from HarperCollins. All worthy nominees; you should check out those publications.
ROBOT 6 is run by a team of contributors and editors, but special thanks should be given to ROBOT 6 lead editor Kevin Melrose, who works with everyone on CBR on curating the blog. He’s joined by a team of contributors — Brigid Alverson, Chris Arrant, Corey Blake, Tom Bondurant, Carla Hoffman, Mark Kardwell, Christ Mautner, Michael May, J. Caleb Mozzocco, Tim O’Shea and JK Parkin — as well as CBR editors Stephen Gerding, Steve Sunu, Albert Ching, Kiel Phegley, Rob Levin and myself, who all work hard daily to bring you exciting and engaging stories from the world of comics.
