Missed It: Eagle Awards Return As The Stan Lee Eagle Awards

Joe Gordon has a succinct post up here about the return of the Eagle Awards -- known to my generation of comics readers as "those awards whose logo appeared on the covers of the Claremont/Byrne X-men comics" -- as The Stan Lee Eagle Awards. I think I share Gordon's take although with maybe half the overall interest level, but it's worth noting. As Gordon indicates, awards exist to call attention to the best in an art form according to various conceptions of that art form, and I'm willing to see how they develop. I know the Eagle Awards existed in iteration between the 1970s and now, but I'm not sure I all the way followed what was going on with them. Nice logo, too.
