For those of you that don’t know what the Eagles are, here is their blurb (http://www.eagleawards.co.uk):
“INTRODUCED in 1976, the Eagle Comic Awards are the comic industry’s longest established awards, acknowledged as the pre-eminent international accolades. The Eagles have been featured on the covers of leading US and UK titles across the last 30 years, unique in that they reflect the people’s choice and comprise of two distinct stages.”
The awards are for all aspects of comic books, and comic related entertainment – and as POWERS is an anthology of super heroic tales it was not only eligible but some kind soul put forth a nomination.
Now, this award is in two stages: the first is the nominations. Every title has to actually get votes, at this stage, to go through to the real ‘voting’ stage with the top five nominations in each category moving on. To be honest it is pretty cool just to even be eligible for nominations but it would be amazing to go through to the top five voting stage and be in with a chance of even winning!
… so, this is where you come in.
If you would like to take a few minutes of your time to help push POWERS a little higher all you need to do is go to the Eagle Awards site (http://www.eagleawards.co.uk) and fill in their survey – when you get to Q10: Favourite Editor it would be really nice if you put me (Jay Faulkner) as your choice, and when you get to Q25: Favourite Comics-Related Book please choose ‘Powers – A Superhero Anthology‘ – after that all you need to do is verify your email address by clicking a link which will be emailed to your from the Eagle Awards site.
Cy Dethan, the professional comic book writer who very kindly did the introduction for the anthology, is also up for a couple of awards so if you are filling out the survey anyway it would be extra nice of you if you took the time to help him out – his sections are: Q1: Favourite Newcomer Writer; Q3: Favourite Writer, Q14: Favourite British Comicbook: Colour (SLAUGHTERMAN’S CREED).
… and, if you decide that you would like to go one step further by asking your friends, family, work colleagues and even your doctor to do it too that would be amazing!
C’mon, lets get this anthology noticed again!
