If you follow me on Snapchat, then you know I was at the Glyph Comic Awards on Friday. It was both my first time at the event, as well as my first time at the African American Museum of Philadelphia (which I will definitely return to because it’s beautiful!). For me the big surprises of the Glyph Awards were Chuck Collins’ BOUNCE! webcomic, winning 3 awards including Best Webcomic, The Rising Star Award and the Fan Award for Best Work and Brandon Montclare, Amy Reeder and Natacha Bustos win with Moongirl and Devil Dinosaur for Best Female character. Both comics prove that black characters in webcomics and black female characters are both relevant and marketable.
