GLAAD Names Rucka and Williams’ Detective Comics as This Year’s ‘Outstanding Comic Book’


The 21st Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Media Awards were held in New York, this past Saturday. One of the awards given out during the ceremony was for the category of “Outstanding Comic Book”, and the award was given to Greg Rucka, in honour of his and JH Williams III’s run on Detective Comics, featuring Batwoman.

In the words of GLAAD: “The GLAAD Media Awards elevate and promote fair, accurate and inclusive stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, people and allies that have increased awareness, understanding and respect for the lives of LGBT people. The GLAAD Media Awards also fund GLAAD’s work to amplify stories of LGBT people and issues that build support for equality.”
