Yesterday the final short-list of nominations for the Eagle Awards was released, and much to my delight, Jennifer Wilde, the comic book I write for Atomic Diner, is one of the contenders in the Favourite European Comic Book category. A special shout-out to Stephen Downey, whose artwork brings Jennifer to life, and to Robert Curley at Atomic Diner, who also nabbed a couple of other nominations.
Voting is open now in all sections until April 2nd.
The final results will be announced at the Eagle Awards ceremony at London’s MCM Expo on Friday, 25 May 2012.
It’s a fitting category for Jennifer Wilde, especially as the series is decidedly European – Jennifer conducts a three-nations tour (France, England, Ireland) during the storyline.
Issue 2 will be going to the printers in the coming days, so fans of the series will be able to read her English adventures in a few weeks.
Just a couple of other notes: on the Forbidden Planet International blog today I review Irish artist/writer Leann Hamiliton’s self-published comic Finn & Fish, and on ComicBuzz recently I reviewed the graphic novel anthology Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, volume 1, published by Archaia Entertainment.
I’m off to P-Con in Dublin today, so I’m looking forward to catching up with friends and colleagues over the weekend.
