Young Avengers Wins Glaad Media Award In Comic Books

imageThe Marvel Comics title Young Avengers won the comic book category in the Glaad Media Awards, given out Saturday. It is their 25th year, during several of which they have included an award for comics. The award is to honor portrayals of members of LGBT communities across media. The other nominees were Husbands, Life With Archie, Fearless Defenders and previous winner Batwoman. Young Avengers won the award previously in a different iteration for the title (this current series started last year and just ended with a 15th issue). The title in some form has been a frequent nominee.

The title's creators include Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Mike Norton and Matthew Wilson, although by some quirk of the awards only writer Gillen was credited in PR. Congratulations to that entire team.
