X-Factor wins GLAAD Media Award

X-Factor #208

Marvel’s X-Factor, by Peter David, Valentine De Landro and others, was honored Saturday night as outstanding comic book at the 22nd annual GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco. Presented by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, the awards recognize media for their representations of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and issues.

X-Factor features the characters Shatterstar and Rictor, whose romantic relationship — long a subject of online speculation and in-story winks — was finally confirmed in 2009. This is the second GLAAD nomination and first win for the series.

The other nominees this year for outstanding comic book were: Avengers: The Children’s Crusade, by Allan Heinberg, Jimmy Cheung and others (Marvel); Buffy the Vampire Slayer, by Joss Whedon, Brad Meltzer, Georges Jeanty, Scott Allie and others (Dark Horse); Fogtown, by Andersen Gabrych and Brad Rader (DC Comics/Vertigo); and Veronica, by Dan Parent (Archie Comics).



Great News!! X-Factor is one of my favorite titles, and it is all thanks to Peter David and his amazing writing! Shatterstar and Rictor – and the whole cast – have so much personality. I love it. Not to mention some great artists – (Raimondi was my favorite!).

Hopefully this will bring some more exposure to the comic – and in turn more readers! Because seriously, whoever isn’t reading this, is missing out on a great comic!

You should of got Peter David’s thoughts on the win too! ;)

Great job PAD (and everyone involved)! Grea tlist of nominees. Impressive bunch and stiff competition.

LOL this is old news. This happened like 3680 thousand months ago!
