Comics nominees announced for 24th GLAAD Media Awards

From "Earth 2" #2

The nominees have been announced for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s 24th annual Media Awards, which honor outstanding portrayals of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities.

The nominees for outstanding comic book are:

  • Astonishing X-Men, by Marjorie Liu and Mike Perkins (Marvel)
  • Batwoman, by J.H. Williams III, W. Haden Blackman, Amy Reeder and Trevor McCarthy (DC Comics)
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer, by Andrew Chambliss, Scott Allie, Jane Espenson, Drew Z. Greenberg, Georges Jeanty and others (Dark Horse)
  • Earth 2, by James Robinson, Nicola Scott, Eduardo Pansica and Tomas Giorello (DC Comics)
  • Kevin Keller, by Dan Parent (Archie Comics)

This is the second nomination for Kevin Keller and Batwoman, which won last year, and at least the third for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which won in 2009. The winners in all categories will be announced during ceremonies in New York City (March 16), Los Angeles (April 20) and San Francisco (May 11). It’s unclear at which event the comics award will be presented.



No mention of Trevor McCarthy’s contribution to Batwoman yet they mention more than half a dozen names for Buffy? Rather unfair to the chap.

Did they just add him because his name is there now.

I’m rooting for Kevin Keller but any of them would be great.

I added McCarthy’s name. GLAAD lists only writers, so I tried to round up the artists for each of the books but overlooked him.

I think Scarlet Spider should have at least been nominated; I’m not saying it should, have won, but a nomination would have been a nice nod for the work Yost has done with gay supporting characters on the book.


Isn’t it cool that folks can actually talk about entries getting snubbed now? There’s more material to pick from, and that, to me, is a good sign.

man, i didn’t know mccarthy was on batwoman. time to catch up! his work on the semi recent nightwing, as boring as the title is, was stellar.
