Your 2012 Eagle Awards Nominees

The venerable, mainstream-oriented, fan-driven program The Eagle Awards has announced it has opened voting until April 2 in a variety of categories. The Roll of Honor nominees -- I'm guessing that's sort of the big award here, considering there are more than two dozen on works and creators from 2011 -- were Brian Michael Bendis, Darwyn Cooke, Adam Hughes, Geoff Johns and Frank Quitely. Also, congratulations to my nominated peers.

I haven't stopped to take the full measure of the nominees relative to one another, but it looks like JH Williams III and his work has a number of nominations. Scott Snyder's writer-category nomination is another indication he's pretty much an A-lister now, or is at least an emerging one.

Winners will be announced on May 25 at the London MCM Expo.
