"The Eagle Awards are the name given to a series of awards for comic book titles and creators. They are awarded by UK fans who vote for who they feel are the best in each category of the awards.
They are named after the fondly remembered 1950s comic title Eagle and originated in 1976 thanks to two British fans, Mike Conroy (now part of the staff of Comics International) and Richard Burton. British comic fandom at this time was still relatively small but the awards proved to be successful, especially with American publishers such as Marvel Comics who would announce their victories with pride. X-Men was one title which regularly gathered handfuls of awards, mainly for its writing and art during the Chris Claremont and John Byrne era.
It wasn't until Britain had a regular annual comic convention (the United Kingdom Comic Art Convention, commonly shortened to UKCAC) in 1986 that the awards became a regular event. During this time creators such as Alan Moore and Alan Davis would win awards while characters such as Batman were always firm fan-favourites.
The awards did disappear for a time, replaced briefly with the National Comics Award, in 2000 they returned as an event at that years Comic Festival (which had replaced UKCAC) presented by Simon Pegg.
They are now part of the current UK comic event, the Comic Expo."
