DC, Dark Horse and Marvel comics earn GLAAD nominations

Young Avengers Presents #3

Young Avengers Presents #3

Titles from DC Comics, Dark Horse and Marvel are nominated for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s 20th annual Media Awards.

The awards honor media representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Nominees in the comic-book category are:

The Alcoholic, by Jonathan Ames (DC Comics/Vertigo)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, by Drew Goddard, Jeph Loeb and Joss Whedon (Dark Horse)
Final Crisis: Revelations, by Greg Rucka (DC Comics)
Secret Six, by Gail Simone (DC Comics)
Young Avengers Presents, by Ed Brubaker, Brian Reed, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Paul Cornell, Kevin Grevioux and Matt Fraction (Marvel Comics)

The nominations list only the writers, a recurring theme with awards outside of the comics industry.

The awards will be presented in a series of dinners beginning March 28. I can never figure out at which ceremony they’ll stick the comics category.

Good, now hopefully representatives from the companies attend to show support for LGBT individuals. I’m curious why no small press/independent books made the cut (although I’m at a loss to name any LGBT focused books right now).
