On Saturday, September 8, the winners of this year's Harvey Awards, which recognize "outstanding work in comics and sequential art," were announced. Drawn & Quarterly's release of Yoshihiro Tatsumi's Abandon the Old in Tokyo anthology was a co-winner of the Best American Edition of Foreign Material award, which it split with Tove Jansson's Moomin: The Complete Comic Strip, Volume 1, also published by Drawn & Quarterly. Although it was created in Europe, Moomin inspired four anime series and one movie in Japan. The only other manga nominated this year, in the same category, was Osamu Tezuka's Ode to Kirihito, which is available in English from Vertical, Inc. Source: Publishers Weekly's The Beat
