GLAAD Media Award Nominees Have Been Announced

The GLAAD Media Awards nominees have been announced, which includes a category for comic books. The awards “recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and the issues that affect their lives.”

The awards tend to recognize “mainstream” representation, so you’ll rarely see indie comics on the list.

Below are the nominees for comics, and comic related other media. You can find the full list at their site.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women from Annapurna Pictures was nominated for “Outstanding Film – Wide Release.” The film is a loose history of the creation of Wonder Woman.

Wynonna Earp, which is based on a comic series, was nominated for “Outstanding Drama Series.”

Legion‘s episode “Chapter 8” was nominated for “Outstanding Individual Episode (in a series without a regular LGBTQ character).”

For comics, the nominees are:

America, by Gabby Rivera, Joe Quinones, Ming Doyle, Stacey Lee, Ramon Villalobos, Walden Wong, Jen Bartel, Annie Wu, Aud Koch, Flaviano, Joe Rivera, Paolo Rivera, José Villarrubia, Jordan Gibson, Tamra Bonvillain, Brittany Peer, Rachelle Rosenberg, Travis Lanham (Marvel Comics)

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.


Top Pick: Avengers #676 (Marvel) – Who or what is this Voyager? The statue of the founding members of the Avengers had a new addition to it at the end of Secret Wars, and now Voyager has ‘returned’, with everyone seeming to know her. I wasn’t a huge fan of this when it was done with the Sentry, so this type of ‘introduction’ did make my eyes roll. BUT, I am intrigued in this story; what happened to the Earth? Who moved it and why? And I just love seeing all the various Avengers assembled (LOVED seeing Lightning, formally Living Lightning, again).

All-New Wolverine #29 (Marvel) – I’m loving this ‘Orphans of X’ storyline. It is a scary thought to think of all the people who have been effected by battles involving the X-Men, but even scarier to see them come together so organized to take them out.

Champions #16 (Marvel) – I am just in love with this title, as anyone who has read my reviews can tell. I am partial to the original line up but I am very excited at the prospect of a new member or members joining their ranks. The team has met up with some interesting teen heroes on their past adventures, so I am looking forward to seeing who will step up to the challenge. I just hope this isn’t one of those “interview the newbies but by the end realize we’re fine as we are” issues. I will not be pleased.

Generation X #86 (Marvel) – Yes, I am a glutton for punishment for still reading this book. I just can’t let go of my Gen X’ers and this issue promises the return of an original member. That is really the only reason this title is on my list.

X-Men Gold #20 (Marvel) – I love it when the X-Men go on space adventures, and this latest story has been pretty good. I’m really happy to see lesser used members like Ink and Armor being part of this team, as it makes for a different dynamic. Unfortunately, our team is now stranded on a unknown planet and the solicit promises a big ‘status quo’ altering event at the end of the issue. I’ll definitely be reading to see what happens.



Top Pick: Days of Hate #1 (Image Comics) – I’ve read this first issue and hours later I’m still reflecting on it. A hell of a start. It’s the future and things have continued to go in the same direction it’s going now. Hate crimes are rampant and there’s a hint about another Civil War. This is a dystopian future that’s all too real.

Fence #3 (BOOM! Studios) – One of the best new series out last year. The comic is about students at an academy in a fencing club. A fantastic mix of sports manga with a western sense.

James Bond: The Body #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Every bruise and scar on James Bond’s body has a story. That concept has me intrigued as to how it’ll translate into a come series. Lots of potential with this one.

Strangers in Paradise XXV #1 (Abstract Studios) – Celebrating 25 years with a brand new series. America’s favorite couple is back!

Transformers: Optimus Prime #15 (IDW Publishing) – Onyx Prime is back!



Harley Quinn #35 (DC Comics) – Frank Tieri has a good track record writing female characters. Looking forward to seeing what he does with Harley post the Palmiotti/Conner run.

America #11 (Marvel) – The start of the “Midas Wars” and America protecting her homes.
