FEMFORCE has received an initial nomination for an award in the “Favorite American Comic Book- Black and White” category for the prestigous 2012 Eagle Awards, presented annually by British comic book fandom. Established in 1976, The Eagles are actually the oldest awards established to honor special achievment in the comic book industry, beating out the US’s Harvey and Eisner awards by several years. This year, the winners will be announced at the London ComicCon at the MCM Expo on May 25th. We at AC Comics are humbled to be considered for inclusion among the ranks of the industries finest for this year. The selection process for the final nominees will be ongoing until the last day of February, at which time the nominations will close, and the top five vote-getters among the nominees in each category will be tallied for inclusion on the final Eagle ballots. Voting for nominees is NOT limited to U.K. residents, and is open to anyone going to the Eagle Awards website. It is not necessary to complete a full survey for your nomination vote to be counted, as long as you register with your name and email information, so we encourage all of you to go to the Eagle site, register and place a nomination vote for FEMFORCE by selecting it from the drop-down menu in the survey category of Favorite American Comic Book-Black and White (survey question #13) and maybe FEMFORCE will make it onto this year’s final Eagle Awards ballot. And while you’re there, we also suggest you vote for our friends at the FirstComicsNews website in the “Favorite Comic-Related Website” category, survey question #27.
