Should Neil Gaiman have a WMG page?
If you want to make one, go ahead. Just make sure the theories are about his work and not his life.
You're right, individual WMG pages for works are better
Does anyone find that with a lot of Gaiman's work, there is at the very least some gay subtext? I mean it's perfectly alright and even makes his characters/plots more interesting/enjoyable. This is only noticeable because generally homosexual elements aren't usually in mainstream comics/stories.
(Or maybe I'm just looking way to deep into it...)
Neil Gaiman's work does not correspond too much with elements "usually in mainstream comics/stories". Also, an example could be helpful in making your point.
Only when they arent in the Text, and mostly because Gaiman himself has said that he never had the chance to mention the sexual preference of some characters without having it seem tacked on, or interruption the whole story for a character to say "by the way I am gay".
Uh, I realise this may be a stupid question, but how's his surname supposed to be pronounced? I'm used to saying it "guy-mon" because... well, I thought "gay-man" was a bit too obvious and didn't want to risk getting it wrong.
Stephen Colbert pronounced it "gay-man" during his interview, and Colbert has a great track record for getting pronunciations right, so I'd go with that.
It's GAY-man, the "man" part pronounced with the same "uh" sound you get in names like Silverman or Goldman.
If it makes you feel better, you can always think of it as "Game-man". No pronunciation difference, but if it helps..
Thanks guys! :D
ferret: Okay, I realise I phrased my initial question wrong. What I wanted to say was that my first instinct was to pronounce it "gay-man/game-man" but I thought there might be a catch and it's actually different.
Now I just have to force myself to stop pronouncing it like "guy-man" :)
