Great analysts,@lunakat-- articulate as always. And I think you're right that Elfquest has managed to put across, from the start, the feeling that all love is normal and good, and it definitely subverted gender stereotypes, and showed interracial relationships, and just altogether put forth the idea of inclusiveness and all kinds of family groupings. It's not that far a leap from that to "homosexual relationships are just as valid as heterosexual relationships". Even if it's not really been shown outright. Nothing wrong with hoping that we'll "get there" some day with Elfquest too, right?
