On January 1st 2012 the nominations round for the Eagle Awards 2012 opened with people free to put forward their ideas of who deserved what awards within the comics industry this year. We were lucky enough to be nominated in a few different categories:
Dan Harris for best penciller
Kris Carter for best colourist
Lou Scannon for best British black and white comic
Now, the Eagle awards started back in 1976 and is the comics industry’s longest established awards so of course, to even be considered by anyone for nomination in the first place was a great honour for us!
Now the round of nominations has finished and it comes down to the actual voting process and amazingly Lou Scannon has made it through to be nominated alongside such industry giants as “Commando” and “Viz”!!
There is a lot of talent out there so to get this far is amazing and we thank every single person who has helped us to get here. I’m actually close to quoting the speech Wayne gives in the communist bar in “Wayne’s World 2″ just to emphasise how happy we are.
A big thank you once more to all of you and for those of you who may not have known about the Eagle Awards or may have known about them but not that we had been nominated, you can go and vote here: http://www.eagleawards.co.uk/nominations/
You don’t have much time though! Voting started today and ends on April 2nd so much love to those of you who do vote!
