Detective Comics Takes Home a GLAAD Award

Greg Rucka and the Detective Comics team were honored at the 21st annual GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Awards on March 13th for Outstanding Comic Book, which features lesbian heroes Batwoman (Kate Kane) and The Question (Renée Montoya) in both the lead and back up stories, respectively.

The depictions of both Batwoman and The Question are handled in an extremely respectful way that does not downplay their sexuality, nor does it portray them as overtly sexual to the point of it becoming a gimmick.

Greg Rucka treats his work and his characters with such great respect, love, and understanding that all fans of Detective Comics know that this comic definitely deserves to take home this award, as it was praised for so many different reasons.

If you missed the Elegy story line, make sure to pick it up when the Hardcover comes out in June, or you could go ahead and preorder it for $16.49 from
