FogtownIt’s always interesting to see what gets nominated for GLAAD’s Media Awards.  Here’s the nominees for this year’s 22nd annual awards.

Outstanding Comic Book
Buffy the Vampire Slayer by Scott Allie, Brad Meltzer, Joss Whedon (Dark Horse Comics)
Fogtown by Andersen Gabrych (Vertigo/DC Comics)
Veronica by Dan Parent (Archie Comics)
X-Factor by Peter David (Marvel Comics)
Young Avengers: Children’s Crusade by Allan Heinberg (Marvel)

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was also nominated for Outstanding Film: Wide Release.

I’ll let the lack of mention of the artists and the incorrect title for Avengers: Children’s Crusade slide, the awards recognize positive portrayals of gays and lesbians in the media.  I can’t speak for Veronica (which I guess is nominated for the recent inclusion of Archie’s first gay character) or Buffy, the other three I think are solid picks especially Fogtown which was under the radar for comic book fans.

Congrats to everyone nominated.
