Eagle Awards Results. At last!!!

The 2008 Eagle Awards were given out at the Bristol Comics Expo on Saturday 10th May 2008.
Confusingly the organisers insist on calling them the 2007 Eagle Awards as they're presented to work published in 2007. But let's overlook that.

    I can't think of a comic store in the UK hat couldn't get Dossier to sell if it wanted to...

    Yeah, it turned out dead easy to procure the Black Dossier in the UK. Not sure it was worth the effort, though.

    The one I'm bothered about was Spectactular Spider-man for best British colour - is it just me that sees this as a massive slap in the face for all the great indy brit comics out there.

  3. As usual the Eagle's are full of what can best be described as disappointing results. But we prevail no matter what.
