Queerty is better as a member
From the article: “It’s the first time Gaiman has touched the character since the original comic’s conclusion in 1996.” This isn’t accurate. Sandman: The Dream Hunters was published in 2000 and Sandman: Endless Nights was published in 2004. Both were about Sandman and written by Gaiman.
Shane you beat me to the punch! Thanks for the correction, true Sandman fan! :)@Shane B:
While I’m overjoyed that this is getting press, this article demonstrates a pretty funny lack of knowledge of Gaiman’s work. While that’s fine since literary fiction isn’t Queerty’s oeuvre it can get harmful. “Spooky” Lesbians? Really, Queerty?
Oh wait Queerty means Chantal and Zelda. My geekiness is showing. Carry on.
“The series is notable for its preponderance of queer characters, including gay faerie Cluracan, spooky lesbians Hazel and Foxglove, and the androgynous, Annie Lennox-inspired Desire.”
Translation: “I haven’t really read the Sandman series but since it has gay characters, I have to pretend to know about it by giving hasty and ignorant editorial comments.”
