Every year, Diamond Comic Distribution’s Diamond Gem Awards recognize the comics and graphic novels that have most helped the industry grow over the previous 12 months. And this year, Marvel.com would like to celebrate MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR for receiving nominations in the categories of Best All Ages Series and Best All Ages Original/Reprint Graphic Novel!

Lunella Lafayette, A.K.A. Moon Girl, was created by Brandon Montclare, Amy Reeder, and Natacha Bustos in 2015—and the world’s smartest person hasn’t looked back since! In response to the nods, series editor Chris Robinson cheers, “It’s no surprise that MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR continues to bring Marvel fans young and old into comic shops, whether they prefer trades or single issues. Kudos, of course, to the series’ creative team, writer Brandon Montclare, artist Natacha Bustos, colorist Tamra Bonvillain, and letterer Travis Lanham—but let’s not forget the wonderful staff at local comic shops everywhere who evangelize the series every month. Thanks y’all!”

The Diamond Gem Award nominations stand as the latest testament to the unique joy, power, and excitement that MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR provides in every issue—in 2016, the series took home a Glyph Comics Award for Best Female Character. The Glyphs recognize outstanding comics made by, for, and about people of color.

As The Smartest There Is in the Marvel Universe, Lunella Lafayette uses her mighty mind, love of science, and best dino pal to save the day as she continues to grow and learn about what it means to be a hero. If you haven’t picked up this one-of-a-kind series, stop by your local shop to find out more!
