Friends of Lulu announces awards, new site

This year has been a difficult one for Friends of Lulu, but with their 2010 Lulu awards, a new website, and some plans for the future, they seem to be winding it up on a hopeful note.

The awards were announced last night at the Long Beach Comic Con, and despite some controversy over the nominations, it's a satisfying slate:

  • Leah Adezio Award for Best Kid-Friendly Work: Diana Nock, The Intrepid Girlbot
  • Best Female Character: Ramona Flowers, Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O'Malley
  • Kim Yale Award for Most Talented Newcomer: Kathryn Immonen: "The Runaways"
  • Lulu of the Year: Kate Beaton
  • Woman of Distinction Award: Lauren Sankovitch: editor, Marvel Comics
  • Female Cartoonists Hall of Fame: Alison Bechdel

Acting board member Kynn Bartlett also responded to Johanna Draper Carlson's questions about the group's IRS status and its plans for the future, saying that the interim board will be working on getting the house in order but keeping the organization's options open for the elected board, and asking people not to make donations until the group straightens out its status with the IRS.
