- My Hero Academia by Kōhei Horikoshi
- My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness by Kabi Nagata

In previous years, manga were nominated alongside other comics in the “Best American Edition of Foreign Material” category. “Best American Edition of Foreign Material” is no longer a category, though there is also a new category for “Best European Book.”
The Harvey Awards will be held in conjunction with New York Comic Con on October 5, 2018.
