Celebrating representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community in the media, the 23rd annual GLAAD Media Awards recognized BATWOMAN as the year’s Outstanding Comic Book. The award was announced Saturday, March 24 at a gala event in New York City.

 

Illustrated by J.H. Williams III and co-written by Williams and W. Haden Blackman, BATWOMAN is the first mainstream ongoing series to feature a lesbian protagonist.

 

BATWOMAN #8 lands in comic book stores on April 11. Collecting the first story arc in its entirety, the BATWOMAN VOLUME 1: HYDROLOGY hardcover will be available on June 13.

 

Congratulations to Williams and Blackman for helping to build a more diverse DC universe.
