Introduced in 1976, the Eagles are the comics industry's longest established awards. Acknowledged as the pre-eminent international prizes, they have been featured on the covers of leading US and UK titles across the last 28 years ranging from Uncanny X-Men and Swamp Thing to MAD Magazine and 2000 AD.

Unique in the comics industry in that they reflect both the professional and the reader's choice, the Eagle Awards consists of two distinct stages:

(i) A Nominations Round allows the entire comics community to choose their favourites.

(ii) The top five nominations then appear on the voting form for the readers and fans to choose from, thus focusing the voting public on the main contenders resulting in no wasted votes.
