deense: Sinfest - dominate or not? (Comics: Terra SQUEE)
Something insane happened today.

No, really, it did. Maybe I should start it like this:
INTRODUCED in 1976, the Eagle Comic Awards are the comic industry's longest established awards, acknowledged as the pre-eminent international accolades.

The Eagles have been featured on the covers of leading US and UK titles across the last 30 years, unique in that they reflect the people's choice and comprise of two distinct stages.

The Eagle Comic Awards ceremony takes place as part of the London MCM Expo - London's Comic Con at Excel in London each May.

Well, it appears that Girls Read Comics Too got nominated for an Eagle award.

No, really, we did.

We're up for best Comics related website, and I am in shock, and totally awed. It's an honour, we're up against some huge sites, and we're pretty new. I mean, for a long time it was just Chantaal, and then the two of us rambling about whatever the heck we could think of. Since the start of the year the team has expanded and is awesome, but all I can think about is me going to [ profile] melloniel "Hey, you're going to let me write for your blog, cause it would be awesome and I know DC pretty well" fully figuring she would laugh at me and tell me no. Never mind all the weeks we went 'GRR ACK WHAT ARE WE GOING TO POST???'

What has developed is something totally awesome, and something we're all proud of. But there's a reason I'm stealing this gif from C cause it's how I feel!

Please, go vote if you'd like (it's question 27) and take a look at some of the nominees.
