The McDuffie Awards for Diversity in Comics:

Five creators will be awarded for their contributions and commitment to diversity, both on the page and behind the scenes in the comic book industry. The award’s namesake, Dwayne McDuffie, is well known among fans and entertainment professionals alike with work on Warner Bros. Justice League Unlimited, Ben 10 and Static Shock animated TV series — the latter of which he co-created, based on the Milestone Media property he was partially responsible for. He also worked on projects for Marvel, DC and other publishers. In 1993, he became one of the founding partners of Milestone Media, a studio created to promote diversity in mainstream comic books and other media. He died in 2011, aged 49. We celebrate his life, his work, and the commitment of creators following in his footsteps.

Judges for this year’s award include a number of comic book industry luminaries, including celebrated Black Panther writer Don McGregor, Batgirl and Birds of Prey writer Gail Simone, Green Lantern and Iron Man artist Mark D. Bright, and Milestone Media’s Matt Wayne, among many others. The winner of the award will be announced at a special ceremony on Saturday at the Long Beach Comic Expo in February of 2018. Nominations will be opened at Long Beach Comic Con in early September 2017.
