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 at Pop Culture Shock (http://glyphs.popcultureshock.com), 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. This is it's 7th year and my second bringing you the award show. The award show took place on Friday May 20th At The African American Museum in Philadelphiahttp://ecbacc.com/wordpress/category/glyph-comic-awards/Plus there is a tribute and award for the late Dwayne McDuffie  If you want to get on the mail list, click here
