It wasn’t until the ‘80s that the Marvel Universe started to introduce queer characters to their stories and it was another 10 years before any characters were able to fully acknowledged their sexuality and actually say “I am gay.” Today, we are joined by Dr. Andrew Deman, a University lecturer and comic book expert to talk about how queerness was introduced into the comic book world and why many readers don’t give comic book creators they credit they deserve.
