NOTE: THE AUDIO DOES NOT START UNTIL 12:12 For the first time, What are you Reading will broadcast the Glyph Comic Awards from the Historic African American Museum in Philadelphia.Pa. The Glyph Comics Awards recognize the best in comics made by, for, and about people of color from the preceding calendar year. While it is not exclusive to black creators, it does strive to honor those who have made the greatest contributions to the comics medium in terms of both critical and commercial impact. By doing so, the goal is to encourage more diverse and high quality work across the board and to inspire new creators to add their voices to the field. The awards are named for the blog Glyphs: The Language of the Black Comics Community [http://www.popcultureshock.com/glyphs/], started in 2005 by comics journalist Rich Watson as a means to provide news and commentary of comics with black themes, as well as tangential topics in the fields of black science-fiction/fantasy and animation. Don't miss out on this once a year event. Hosted by Jamar Nicholas
