Hip Hop Family Tree not applicable? Or didn’t make the list?

It’s by a white dude.

Mr. Biscuit, white people can be on the list, especially if their comic features a person of color. Mike Benson is a white gentleman and his comic, “Luke Cage: Noir” was nominated for past Glyph awards (I can’t recall if it won).

On another note, I’ve heard “March: Book One” and “Molly Danger” are both really good so I wouldn’t be surprised to see them win in any categories they appear within.

P.S.
I double-checked to be thorough, and “Luke Cage: Noir” did win some Glyph awards.
