John Romita Jr. was also presented with the Hero Lifetime Achievement Award. It was presented to him from two legends: his father and Stan Lee. From looking over the list, it isn’t hard to see who the big winners at this year’s Harvey Awards were. I’ve been saying it since the book came out- Daredevil is amazing and if you aren’t reading it you really should be. Mark Waid, Paolo and Joe Rivera and now Chris Samnee are doing some fantastic work. Congratulations to all of this years winners. What do you think of the list? Are you happy with the winners? Did somebody get snubbed?
