The Eagle Awards are United Kingdom's comic book awards. "They are named after the fondly remembered 1950s comic title Eagle and originated in 1976 thanks to two British fans, Mike Conroy (now part of the staff of Comics International) and Richard Burton. British comic fandom at this time was still relatively small but the awards proved to be successful, especially with American publishers such as Marvel Comics who would announce their victories with pride. X-Men was one title which regularly gathered handfuls of awards, mainly for its writing and art during the Chris Claremont and John Byrne era."
