I'm pretty sure this has been asked a gazillion times, but I'm bored and really curious.
Also, has Huntress really gone without sex since then??

Josh was supposed to be a one-time character, just someone so obnoxious that people wanted to kill him.
Amazingly, he became a hit, we got a TON of mail for him to return. I THINK, but I can't say for certain, that people liked a clueless geeky guy who lacked the sense to not be obnoxious to a fully-armed Huntress.
He's fun to write, but I want to throttle him myself, sometimes.
He got huge responses from both men and women. Interestingly, my editor at the time, an openly gay woman, HATED Josh and dreaded every time we brought him back. I think she felt it devalued Huntress, or maybe it was just a visceral thing.
I'm with lesbian editor lady. Hated him. Hope he died horribly. The idea that Helena would ever touch a guy like that...it hurts my brains.
So if Josh was Huntress's last nookie, that means The Threesome never happened, right?
Gail - was "lesbian editor lady" Lysa Hawkins? Just curious!
