The Dandy has been nominated for an Eagle!

There are many awards for comics throughout the world. In America, the Eisner's and the Harvey's hold forth among a sea of contenders, while the Prix de la Critique and the simply ridiculously named le Palmarès Officiel du Festival international de la bande dessinée decide the best of the best in France.

And little old England has the Eagles.

Now the Eagle awards have, and always will have, a very special place in the heart of we Etheringtons. In 2007 we were nominated in the category of Favourite Black and White British Comic book for our debut graphic novel Malcolm Magic (but we woz robbed on the night ... not that we're not bitter ... ahem)

So you can imagine our delight at being able to announce that The Dandy (featuring YORE!) has been nominated for the 2011 category of Favourite Colour British Comic book. The competition is going to be stiff as 2000AD almost ALWAYS wins this one, and the Doctor Who Magazine has about a billion readers (even though it's not really a comic.)

But if you'd like to help us buck the recent trend and finally claim that long overdue award (we're not bitter at all, honest) then simply GO HERE and click randomly for folks in the various categories until you reach Q14 - then pick The Dandy!
