Comics news…The nominations for this year’s Eagle Awards have started – www.eagleawards.co.uk…Regarding the roll of honour which is listed at the bottom of the voting form – at the risk of being terribly egotistical, may I suggest me, Alex Fitch (if my name isn’t listed, please type it in) in the category of “entrepreneur whose achievements have… increased public awareness (of comics)”? (I know it says “in print”, but then I do publicise the show in [electronic] print)… If we can get Oli Smith’s London Underground Comics video podcasts listed under favourite TV / film (going for the loosest definition of the words), that would be great too.
