So there I was, sitting at work when a tweet came through from our friends at Where Monsters Dwell that we’d made it through to the voting round of the Eagle Awards for best Comics Related Website. Now, there was a nominating round a few weeks back and we were nominated by some lovely people, and apparently we got enough votes to make it through to the voting round. It’s a shock and an honour, we’re nominated with some amazing sites including Comics Alliance and Newsarama. Wow. Just… Wow.
For those who don’t know the Eagle awards, I’ll quote their blog:
INTRODUCED in 1976, the Eagle Comic Awards are the comic industry’s longest established awards, acknowledged as the pre-eminent international accolades.
The Eagles have been featured on the covers of leading US and UK titles across the last 30 years, unique in that they reflect the people’s choice and comprise of two distinct stages.
The Eagle Comic Awards ceremony takes place as part of the London MCM Expo – London’s Comic Con at Excel in London each May.
Anyway, you should take a look at the Eagle Awards here and vote for some of the amazing writers, artists and books nominated. If you want to vote for Girls Read Comics Too…. We wouldn’t take it amiss!
