DC, Dark Horse and Marvel comics earn GLAAD nominations
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.
