Glyph Award Nominees 2015

The Glyph awards recognize the best in comics made by, for, and about Black people 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 comic book medium in terms of both critical and commercial impact. The goal of the Glyph Comics Awards is to encourage more diverse and high quality work across the board and to inspire new creators to add their voices to the field.
