The British Eagle Award Nominations came out today--or recently, anyway, but I just saw them today. And while IDW got jobbed as far as a nom for Best Publisher (somehow DC and Vertigo got separate nods for Best Pub), I did spot this little section:
10: Award for Favourite Editor
Well, how about that? Now, never mind the fact that I think I deserve to win just for spotting the typo in "Favourite" above... but if you need additional reasons to vote for me, consider these totally unbiased facts about the other nominees:
AXEL ALONSO: If you vote for him, Mephisto will just invalidate the vote anyway.
KRIS SIMON: The spelling of his first name is all wrong--can't have that in a Favourite [sic] editor.
THARG: Oh, c'mon, that's not even a real word.
TOM BREEVORT: Have we all forgotten Avengers Disassembled so soon? I think not. Also, even money that Tom is actually a Skrull.
So there you go, there's my campaigning. If elected, I promise to keep fellow Eagle Award nominees Ben Templesmith and Ashley Wood gainfully employed and productive. Also, I promise to keep things like ANGEL: AFTER THE FALL, LOCKE & KEY, STAR TREK comics by folks like John Byrne, and so much more coming out on time and with no ads running in the middle of the stories.
It would make me feel better about the heavy gunfire I had to dodge when I attended the Bosnia Comic-Con a few years ago, too.
So if any of that sways you, please, vote away:
Vote here! Vote Ryall!*
*I spared you from my 6th grade class president campaign slogan, "Be in style, vote for Ryall!"
