23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards Comics Nominations Announced

The comic book nominees for the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards have been announced.  The award is for series that portray LGBT characters in a positive way.  This years nominees are:

Outstanding Comic Book
• Avengers: The Children’s Crusade by Allan Heinberg, Marvel
• Batwoman by J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman, DC Comics
• Secret Six by Gail Simone, DC Comics
• Veronica Presents: Kevin Keller by Dan Parent, Archie Comics
• X-Factor by Peter David, Marvel Comics

All are great examples of the progressive nature of comics and how this is being portrayed in mainstream comics.  I do also encourage folks to check out Prism Comics and Northwest Press (two examples of many) that primarily produce LGBT comics.  Congrats to all the nominees, all of which I’d be happy to win.
