The Last Eagle Award Winners

This year’s Eagle Awards were announced on Sunday at the MCM London Comic Con. Although congratulations are in order to the award-winners, the Eagle Awards -which first began in 1976 – will be retired and overhauled into the MCM Awards as of next year.

There is largely nothing overwhelmingly earth-shattering in this year’s award winners (the only surprise in the list being perhaps 2000AD losing its seat as Best British Colour Comicbook to Doctor Who Magazine). However, I have to admit being happy to see Jeff Lemire, Scott Snyder and 20th Century Boys getting some gongs. Anywho fellow Geeks – these should tide us over until the Eisner Awards in July. Below is the list of categories for the award winners, and their fellow nominees. Winners are in bold:
