Support Doctor Who Comics - Vote in the Eagle Awards
Doctor Who comics are resurgent in North America right now, thanks to the efforts of IDW Publishing, with their Doctor Who ongoing comic, and their wonderful reprints of Doctor Who Classics which you can order at your local comic book store, amazon.com, or via their website - http://idwpublishing.com
If you have enjoyed the comic series from IDW, now is the chance to show its creators, including Writer - Tony Lee, Artists - Matthew Dow Smith, and Al Davison, Colorist - Charlie Kirchoff, Letterer - Richard Starkings and Publisher - IDW Publishing, just how much you enjoy it by voting for them in the Eagle Awards.
The Eagle Awards are the UK comic equivalent of the Oscars and the BAFTAs and the Emmys. They are named for a famous boys comic started in the 1950s that gave the world Dan Dare and the Mekon! I used to read a relaunched version of it as a kid and always enjoyed it!
