Transformers News: IDW, Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye, James Roberts Shortlisted in True Believers Comic Awards


THE TRUE Believers Comic Awards were established in 2014 to provide a worldwide platform for professionals and non-professionals alike to voice their opinions of the work being done in the medium.

Headed by Cassandra Conroy and her father Mike, the self-styled People's Choice Awards provide fans around the world with a fresh opportunity to honour their favourite writers, artists and titles of the previous year. "I'm delighted to give a voice to both the fans and professionals" said Cassandra.

The True Believer Comic Awards will be held annually in July at the London Film and Comic Con.

The 2014 prizes will be handed out as part of this year's London Film & Comic Con with the inaugural ceremony being held at Earls Court on Saturday, July 12th. In attendance will be legendary Marvel Universe co-creator Stan Lee, who is making his last ever official European convention appearance.

That cover is amazing. MTMTE deserves some awards for sure. The art and colouring are superb. Obviously the writing is pretty good too cause i'm still reading. ;)

The "True Believers" should be disbanded for voting in poor taste!

F**k yea!

OK, I filled out the form, gotta say some of the topics featured stuff that didn't feature any choice I could agree on, or say were actually worthy of a nomination. Especially the covers, which were pretty much all in the same style.

I know, but there are some excellent choices nonetheless.

It's such good news to have this much exposure within comics readership, I'm really really happy for all involved!
