GLAAD Awards Honor Gay Comics

GLAAD has released the nominees for the 2012 GLAAD awards. What was nominated in the comic book category?

Today, GLAAD announced the nominees in their annual Media Awards, which recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representation of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives. The awards feature an Outstanding Comic Book category, despite the fact that the comic book industry views gay rights as a cheap marketing gimmick to snag free publicity and increase sales on their comics, similar to the way they view polybagged hologram variant covers. In any case, Peter David and X-Factor won the award last year, for "pissing off alleged homophobe Rob Liefeld when he made Shatterstar gay," and this year there are a new round of nominees:

Astonishing X-Men by Marjorie Liu
Marvel

Batwoman by W. Haden Blackman, J.H. Williams III
DC Comics

Buffy the Vampire Slayer by Andrew Chambliss, Scott Allie, Jane Espenson, Drew Z. Greenberg
Dark Horse

Earth 2 by James Robinson
DC Comics

Kevin Keller by Dan Parent
Archie Comics

We say give it to Buffy or Batwoman, as they're the least shamelessly opportunistic examples of exploitation of the bunch. What do you think?

The Outhouse reached out to prominent gay comic book character Iceman for comment on being snubbed from the awards. "I'm not gay," said Iceman, defensively. "Not that there's anything wrong with being gay. I'm just saying, for me personally, I'm into girls. I like to touch their boobies and like, their vaginas and stuff. I'm totally dating Kitty Pryde, and it's not because Jewish girls have a lot of body hair and so from behind she looks like Wolverine. I'm totally into, like, having breeder sex with her, as a girl, and stuff."

No statement about Liefeld's appreciation of gay Shatterstar?

I think Kevin Keller is less exploitative than either of those.

Odd that an alleged homophobe would draw women so badly and men so muscley. :lol:

Batwoman would be my pick. Not a fan of the gay turn on Alan Scott in E2. Not reading the rest of those.

I myself think Buffy should get it, that storyline was really well done.

I vote for Northstar wedding. Astonishing X-Men # 51 was so great.
