Bio: Denise Sudell is the Resident Lesbian (and a staff writer) at the award-winning, woman-produced comics webzine Sequential Tart. Her recent Tarticles about queers in comics include Face-Off of the Flaming Queens, a comparison of Marvel's Rawhide Kid with DC Comics/Vertigo's Go-Go Fiasco and Donna Barr's Desert Peach, in the May 2003 issue.
Since mid-2002, she's been a member of the Comic Book Nominating Committee for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD)'s annual Media Awards. She also hangs out on (and serves as Assistant Sysop for) the CompuServe Comics Forum, whose members have been described by the ever-charitable Warren Ellis as \%\%fangeezers.\%\%
In her paying job, she's an attorney working underground (read: within the system) to keep the evil overseers of the Bush administration from dismantling U.S. federal civil rights laws.
Primary turn-on: sanity. Turn-offs include poor punctuation and Rick Santorum.
