GROWING UP surrounded by comics and immersed in the British comics scene thanks to her father, Mike Conroy, it was all but inevitable that Conroy would develop her own love for the medium. A face on the UK convention circuit since her early teens, Conroy took over the running of the Eagle Awards from her father in 2008 when she was only 16.
Conroy's desire to create a new, up-to-date and more relevant Awards show for the 21st century has led to her once again teaming up with her father to bring the industry a new worldwide brand in The True Believers Comic Awards. Since 2012, Conroy has been co-producing the Comic Zone element of Showmasters' various UK-based multimedia events with her father.
ONE OF the UK’s leading comics journalists, Mike Conroy is currently publisher/editor of Multiverse, Britain’s leading comics news magazine. He writes the bonus features for all the titles in Hachette’s hugely successful Ultimate Marvel Graphic Novel Collection line, as well as co-producing Comics Zone, the event-within-an-event at Showmasters’ massive nationwide multimedia extravaganzas, with his daughter Cassandra. A veteran comics journalist, historian, author and biographer, Mike Conroy was also the founder of the Eagle Awards. Established in 1976, inthe past the Eagle Awards were one of the comics industry’s oldest and most coveted international prizes.
