Hajime Isayama’s manga wins Best American Edition of Foreign Material category
The Harvey Awards announced its 2014 winners at a banquet on September 6, and Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan manga won an award in the “Best American Edition of Foreign Material” category. Attack on Titan has topped graphic novel sales in North America and Japan, with more than 40 million copies sold as of July 30. Its anime adaptation is currently airing on Adult Swim’s Toonami block. Kodansha USA is currently releasing the manga in North America.
Unlike the Eisner Awards and other awards in the North American comic book industry, the Harvey Awards are nominated and selected by the comic book professionals themselves. The Harvey Awards were held in conjunction with Baltimore Comic-Con.
