The Friends of Lulu, an organization dedicated to promoting comics work by, for, and about women, have announced the winners of their annual Lulu awards. They are:
Woman of Distinction: Joanne Carter Siegel
Leah Adezio Award for Best Kid-Friendly Work: Rapunzel’s Revenge, by Shannon Hale, Dean Hale, and Nathan Hale
Female Comic Creator’s Hall of Fame: Gail Simone
Volunteer of The Year: Marion Vitus
This is mostly a mature bunch, but Wapsi Square bills itself as a YA webcomic, and Kate Beaton’s work is pretty teen-friendly as well, especially for teens who are suffering through history class.
Full disclosure: I was a judge for the awards, although most of my nominations didn’t win (I picked Rapunzel’s Revenge for best female character).
