Harvey Award results: Kate Beaton and Tale of Sand win big

On Saturday night in Baltimore last weekend, the Harvey Awards announced their 2012 winners.

Canada’s own Kate Beaton won three awards, and Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand won two (interestingly enough without mentioning Ramon Perez’s contributions). Drawn & Quarterly was well represented as the publisher of Kate’s book, as well as winning best repackaged book for putting out a new edition of Clowes’ Death Ray.
