the glyph awards, ecbacc, theblerdgurl,

The Glyph Comic Awards were created by and held in conjunction with The East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention in Philadelphia, PA. The Glyphs goal is to recognize the best in comics made by, for, and about people of color from the previous calendar year. The awards are not only for African-American creators, nor are they only for comics featuring Black characters. However, past winners have all created comics with at least one major character of color. (For more information on ECBACC check out my previous post here).

The Award Nominee list is as follows:
