Eagle nomination

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.

Jennifer Wilde, Vol 1, Issue 1

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.
