 Note: Gay/lesbian characters appear in minor recurring roles in The Flash (Piper, a reformed villain and friend of the title character), the Superman books (Maggie Sawyer, head of the Metropolis Police Dept's Special Crimes Unit), Static (Rick, a friend of the title character's non-costumed identity), and The Incredible Hulk in the early #400's (Hector, a member of a secretive family of heroes known as the Pantheon). Gay characters also appear prominently in Superboy and the Ravers from DC, as well as Breakneck Blvd., The Waiting Place, and The Copybook Tales, both from Slave Labor Graphics.
Dedicated to the memories of Andy Bristol, cerebral hemorrhage survivor.
