Supernatural, Batwoman, Orphan Black Snag GLAAD Award Nominations

Yup. You read that right. Supernatural, a show outdone in sheer amount of queerbaiting only by Sherlock (yeah, I said it), got nominated for an award meant to honor the portrayal of LGBT persons in media.

Amanda Age 30: We Should All Be Ashamed of 2013

Editor’s Note: as 2013 drew to a close, we asked contributing writer Amanda LaPergola to sum the year’s geekiest highlights in an entertaining and timely fashion.  We emphasized the timely part for her benefit.  That was almost two months ago.  It is now nearly the end of January, and Amanda still won’t answer any of our texts.

DeviantArt user Pryce14, AKA Jamal Campbell, has some awesome art in his gallery, including a ton of great art of superheroines!  His ladies are in proportion, sexy but not objectified, and generally look pretty badass (check out that Psylocke!).

The Mary Sue’s Favorite Posts of 2013

We’ve shown you the posts that got you clicking and talking in 2013, but now it’s time to get biased. See, all of us here at The Mary Sue love writing for The Mary Sue in general, but there are some posts that we just love more than the others. Maybe something exciting happened. Maybe something disappointing happened and we relished the opportunity to write about it and discuss it with our readers. Maybe someone sent us superhero-themed sex toys. 2013 was a weird year.

DiDio Attempts to Explain DC’s Marriage Ban; Will Scrap Last Williams/Blackman Batwoman Issues?

DC Comics’ PR has taken multiple hits this week, and this weekend is a major convention, so you know what that means: DC higher ups giving unsatisfying responses to fan outcry at Baltimore Comic Con. Specifically, we’re talking about Dan DiDio saying that superheroes should never have happy personal lives, Aquaman and Mera aren’t married, and that a new writer will be taking over Batwoman with issue #25.
