Yesterday the Harvey Awards announced their lineup of 2020 nominations. The Best Manga category, which was first implemented in 2018, goes as follows:

  •     H.P. Lovecraft’s At Mountains of Madness by Gou Tanabe (Dark Horse Manga)
  •     The Man Without Talent by Yoshiharu Tsuge (New York Review Comics)
  •     The Poe Clan by Moto Hagio (Fantagraphics)
  •     The Way of the Househusband by Kousuke Oono (VIZ Media)
  •     Witch Hat Atelier by Kamome Shirahama (Kodansha Comics)

The Way of the Househusband and Witch Hat Atelier had previously won at the Eisner Awards, another award for graphic novels. The winners of the Harvey Awards will be announced at New York Comic Con this October, which, no surprise, will be online.

The Harvey Awards, named after MAD Magazine creator Harvey Kurtzman, explained, “Nominees for this year’s awards were once again selected by a committee of diverse industry voices including creators, publishing professionals, retailers, educators, and librarians.”

If you were going to vote in this category, what would you pick? Or would you pick a title not listed here?
