GLAAD’s 2011 Nominees for Outstanding Comic Book

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has announced the nominees for their 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards. Of note to my audience is the category of Outstanding Comic Book. This years choices are not remotely surprising. 3 of them (including the 2010 winner – X-Factor) were in the running last year. The other 2 picks feature LGBT characters that previously garnered nominations for other titles (The pre DCnU relationship between Batwoman and Renee Montoya a.k.a. The Question was central to the 2008 nominee Final Crisis: Revelations and Kevin Keller’s introduction got Archie Comics’ Veronica on the list in 2010)

X-Factor, by Peter David, Emanuela Lupacchino, Valentine De Landro and others (Marvel Comics) - nominated due to gay couple Rictor and Shatterstar) Avengers: The Children's Crusade, by Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung (Marvel Comics) - nominated due to starring gay couple Wiccan and Hulkling and guest star gay couple Rictor and Shatterstar Batwoman, by J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman (DC Comics) - nominated due to the title character Kate Kane) Veronica Presents: Kevin Keller, by Dan Parent (Archie Comics) - nominated due to Veronica's new gay best friend Kevin Keller Secret Six, by Gail Simone and Jim Calafiore (DC Comics) - nominated due to Scandal Savage, Knockout and exotic dancer Liana Kerzner)

X-Factor, by Peter David, Emanuela Lupacchino, Valentine De Landro and others (Marvel Comics) – nominated due to the unique and frankly written relationship between gay couple Rictor and Shatterstar. Won last year. Chances of winning again?

Avengers: The Children’s Crusade, by Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung (Marvel Comics) – nominated due to Young Avengers resident gay couple Wiccan and Hulkling and guest starring members of X-Factor including gay couple Rictor and Shatterstar. Wiccan and Hulkling are a fan favorite and have gotten other Young Avengers titles on the list before (including ATCC), but haven’t won the award yet. This is the “popular” choice and would get my vote if only to keep Hulkling and Wiccan from becoming the Susan Lucci of the category.

Batwoman, by J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman (DC Comics) – nominated due to the title character, lipstick lesbian Gotham City socialite Kate Kane by day, Batwoman by night. Kate is another fan favorite, we waited forever for Batwoman #1 and the series is well-scripted and matter of fact about her romantic inclinations, so she has a strong chance.

Veronica Presents: Kevin Keller, by Dan Parent (Archie Comics) – nominated due to the title character, Kevin Keller… out and Proud Riverdale teen and Veronica’s new gay best friend. This four issue miniseries came hot on the heels of his overwhelmingly well received appearances in Veronica #202 and #205 and sold so well that Kevin Keller is a monthly ongoing in 2012. I think Kevin Keller has the advantage because he’s giving hope and empowering an entire generation of LGBT youth. Of all the nominees, Kevin Keller has made the biggest splash and has done the most to further LGBT representation in the comics medium.

Secret Six, by Gail Simone and Jim Calafiore (DC Comics) – nominated due to Scandal Savage proposing a polygamous marriage between herself, her formerly dead lover Knockout and her current girlfriend exotic dancer Liana Kerzner. Secret Six really WAS a great title. I’d root for this title to win if I thought it might get it back on the executive radar and on the DCnU lineup. But I think Secret Six is only on this list this year because Gail Simone is beloved by our community for previous good deeds and straight boys love lesbians. I’d rather have seen Stormwatch included.

Peter David’s X-Factor wins a GLAAD Media Award

Peter David’s excellent comic about mutant private detectives has won itself the 2011 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic for its portrayal of the romantic relationship between Rictor and Shatterstar. X-Factor was among the 2010 nominees as well, but was beat out by Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8, which was also nominated this year (for some reason).

Peter David's X-Factor - Winner of the 2011 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book
Avengers: The Children's Crusade - nominated for 2011 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book (for the Hulkling / Wiccan relationship) Veronica (from archie Comics) - nominated for 2011 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book (for the introduction of Kevin Keller) Fogtown - nominated for 2011 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book (for its closeted PI hero) Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 - nominated for 2011 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book (not sure why - this was nominated last year for Buffy's lesbian fling - but there wasn't much gay content since then)

Also nominated were… Avengers: The Children’s Crusade (by Allan Heinberg from MARVEL COMICS), Veronica (by Dan Parent from ARCHIE COMICS), Fogtown (by Andersen Gabrych from VERTIGO/DC COMICS) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (by Scott Allie, Brad Meltzer, Joss Whedon from DARK HORSE COMICS). I can see why most of this years nominees were on this short list – but the inclusion of Buffy TVS this year puzzles me. It was nominated last year for Buffy’s lesbian tryst with Satsu, but I don’t really recall any gay content since (except for a few suspect comments from Andrew).

Personally I think X-Factor deserved the award last year and I’d have given it to Veronica this year for the introduction of gay teen Kevin Keller to the conservative town of Riverdale. I LOVE Buffy Season 8, but the lesbian fling was just the usual titillating girl on girl action that straight fanboys enjoy so much. I don’t think it should be nominated.
