Knowing Starks' work I strongly suspect that Fuck will have much more going on under the hood than a typical Millar character. I'm also not sure if I necessarily think the joke there is homophobic? I really can't tell you how to react, but I think the joke is that the guy's dad was a homophobe and an idiot.

Do you think this "A" stands for "France"?

"the guy's dad was a homophobe and an idiot"

I did take it that way (with the additional layer that Fuck is also an idiot* who may be in denial about or ashamed of his own sexuality**)

*The "Dayb" joke coming right after the comment about the US education system may be the most "Mark Millar" thing here.

**"Well, I'm tough as hell but sexually ambiguous" seems like a very odd way to respond to being asked if he's gay.

Reading the book, "Fuck Tarkington" is not even close to the silliest name in it.
