NEIL GAIMAN Responds To LUCIFER Boycott
Neil Gaiman has taken to his Tumblr to respond to One Million Moms's boycott of Fox's upcoming Lucifer TV series. Based on characters Gaiman created in Sandman, Lucifer sees the lord of Hell become bored with his station, and enter the mortal world.
Gaiman had this to say about the boycott: "Ah. It seems like only yesterday (but it was 1991) that the “Concerned Mothers of America” announced that they were boycotting Sandman because it contained Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans characters. It was Wanda that upset them most: the idea of a Trans Woman in a comic book… They told us they were organising a boycott of Sandman, which they would only stop if we wrote to the American Family Association and promised to reform.
I wonder if they noticed it didn’t work last time, either…"
Lucifer is set to debut this fall on Fox.
