This year’s GLAAD Media Awards have been announced, which includes comics from mainstream publishers that are deemed to best depict LGBT people. The nominees for comics this year include:
- Hawkeye (Marvel)
- Lumberjanes (Boom! Studios)
- Memetic (Boom! Studios)
- Rat Queens (Image)
- Saga (Image)
That’s two nominees from Image, two from Boom!, and one from Marvel. DC seems to be snubbed; the negative changes made to “Batwoman” surely can’t have helped, nor its cancellation.
Another positive sign of the boom in independent comics, though Marvel’s “Hawkeye” is itself a decent title.
A full list of nominees is available here.
