eagle awards

Classics Illustrated has been nominated for several Eagle Awards! I'd like to encourage any of you who haven't voted yet to consider the gang at Classics Illustrated. The publishers and artists have done a lot of great work and worked very hard in 2010.

I'm not going to pander for votes for myself, but the team involved in CI really deserves some recognition.

The categories that we are in (that I'm aware of) are:
Best Letter - Jaak Jarve - Jaak has done new letters on a number of the Classics issues, including my #129 featuring Davy Crockett and he did a beautiful job.

Best North American Series - Classics Illustrated (published by Jack Lake Productions)(prestige hardcovers published in the US by Papercutz)

Best UK Series - Classics Illustrated (published by Classic Comic Store Ltd.)

Best UK Publisher - Classic Comic Store Ltd.

Best European Series - Classics Illustrated (various affiliated publishers)

Best UK Reprint - Classics Illustrated #27 featuring Ben-Hur (Story- Lew Wallace, Art -Joe Orlando, Embellishments and colors - Mike Gagnon, Letters Jaak Jarve)

Best Colorist - Mike Gagnon (me)

I've invited a number of you creative and comic book types out there. I only ask that you consider us against the others when casting your votes and vote for what you feel is best.

The 5 nominees with the highest votes move on to the final voting round on March 14th.
