Gayer Than A Gay Thing That's Gay!
I have discovered the gayest comic of all time. Gayer than an issue of Gay Heartthrobs or Meatmen. And I fully intend to take advantage of the fact that I'm probably one of the few bloggers who can get away with a post like this, by telling you why Sensation Comics #1 is the gayest comic of all time.
Here's the DC Millenium Edition cover, as I, for some reason, don't have a lot of high-quality Golden Age comics in my collection:
First of all, the lead story is Wonder Woman. A heroine from the island of Lesbos, I mean Paradise Island, who has gone on to be more well-known as a gay icon and inspiration for drag queens than a crime-fighter.
Next, we have the Black Pirate. I mean, just look at the guy. As if the Freddie Mercury moustache and big gold hoop earring (in his left ear, indicating he's a "top") aren't clue enough, he's a freaking pirate! What, exactly, do you think cabin boys were for?
Next up is Mister Terrific. Really, really bad taste in clothing aside, he's a classic over-acheiver and neat freak. Just like every fastidious gay man who ever tried to impress a distant and uncaring father is. And while MT never officially came out, the signs are definatly there.
Moving along, we come to the Gay Ghost. No comment is neccessary, I believe...
The next feature is Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys. Sounds like the back-up dancers in a drag cabaret. But what we have is the opposite of Mister Terrific's wardrobe. It's simply not possible for a heterosexual man to co-ordinate that well, no matter how many "queer eyes" he gets trained on him.
Lastly, we get the origin of the swellest, butchest, most masculine super-hero of all time, Wildcat. I mean, come on...he's a little too butch to be straight when you get right down to it.
