The awards, which "honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives", have recognized several comic books from last year. Read on for the full list..

The 24th annual GLAAD Media Award nominees have been revealed. Here are the nominations in the "Outstanding Comic Book" category..

So we have the same-sex marriage from Astonishing X-Men, a lesbian main character in Batwoman (which won last year), the gay slayer from Buffy, a gay Green Lantern in Earth 2 and I have no idea who Kevin Keller is but I'm gonna assume he's a gay Archie character? Anyway, who do you think should win? There are lots of other categories, with movies such as Cloud Atlas and Paranorman picking up noms so be sure to click the link below to check them out.
