GLAAD Media Awards

The nominees for 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards for outstanding comic book are:
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer, by Jane Espenson, Steven S. DeKnight, Drew Z. Greenberg, Jim Krueger, Doug Petrie, Joss Whedon, Georges Jeanty and others (Dark Horse)
  • Detective Comics, by Greg Rucka, J.H. Williams III and Cully Hamner (DC Comics)
  • Madame Xanadu, by Matt Wagner, Amy Reeder Hadley and Richard Friend (DC Comics)
  • Secret Six, by Gail Simone, Jim Calafiore, Doug Hazelwood, Nicola Scott and others (DC Comics)
  • X-Factor, by Peter David, Bing Cansino, Valentine De Landro, Marco Santucci and others (Marvel)
All have good lesbian and gay characters - in the case of Madame Xanadu and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the title character - but Detective Comics tackles the US military's "don't ask don't tell" policy. Admittedly, that policy is really stupid in a way that only Americans can be really stupid and therefore a fairly easy target, but I think it'll get Detective Comics over the line.
