Yep, reading and enjoying FAR SECTOR (albeit, here on DCUI).

She’s fast becoming a favorite character.

And now her comic is being recognized “For Outstanding Comic Books” by the GLAAD Media Awards.

Ha! Go figure.

Congratulations to N.K. Jemisin and Jamal Campbell, and to the rest of the team. And to DC Comics.

Congratulations! :tada: Definitely well deserved—not surprised to see Greg Rucka :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: or Suicide Squad or Far Sector. I’ll have to check out that Alex Sanchez.

Congratulations! You should be proud.
I really loved You Brought Me the Ocean. Great story, beautiful art. It felt very fresh and original, unlike anything I’ve read before.

You Bought Me the Ocean has been on my radar but I haven’t bought it yet. Lois Lane was outstanding and is the definition of a page turner. I was so happy to see Renee Montoya as the Question! I have slowly been reading Far Sector and have yet to find a bad issue, considering this has @Isaac.Lawrence’s endorsement, among many others, I am excited to finish it. Suicide Squad is now on my list of books to read. Sheesh, I was hoping 2021 would be the year that ever-growing list would shrink.

I am a middle-aged heterosexual male and I enjoy the fact that DC has a very wide variety of characters in their books. I hope that these characters and these books make members of the LGBTQ community feel welcome in these stories and in this community. Everyone has stories to be told and I’m glad DC gives the creators, artists and writers a place to tell the stories they want to tell.
