Hey, Wonder people.  Ready for a little Wednesday Wonder Woman action? I sure am.

Greetings,  Wunderkind! This week, we have a couple of exciting Wonder Woman announcements to chat about.

Wonder Woman fans can be pretty picky. Maybe picky isn’t the right word. Wonder Woman fans can be very specific. For some fans, there are only certain incarnations of Wonder Woman that are acceptable. The best example of this being, of course, “Lynda Carter is my only Wonder Woman.”  Now, I’m not in the position to really disagree with that opinion, as Lynda is the reason I fell in love with Wonder Woman, and she would absolutely be my favorite version of Wonder Woman if hard pressed to make a decision.

This week, we follow the theme of focusing on real-life Wonder Women as we turn the spotlight toward actress Margot Kidder.

With Wonder Woman 2 not coming out until November 2019, we can only speculate and fantasize about how awesome it will be. A few bits of information have come out about the movie, and I’m here to tell you the dirt (as I know it).

Back in the hay day of comics (also known as the ‘80s), there was somewhat of a British Invasion. DC Comics’ then president, Jeanette Kahn, was looking to inject new energy into the company and went abroad to recruit British talent. The likes of writers Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and Neil Gaiman definitely made an impact and shaped the way comics would lead in the future.  The mature writing that said writers did inspired a little subgroup for mature readers, the legendary Vertigo Comics.  There was also “discovered” British artists in the likes of Alan Davis, Dave Gibbons, and Brian Bolland.

Hey, readers! Happy Wonder Woman Wednesday. Lynda Carter is all over the place these days. I’m happy to see during Wonder Woman’s “Rebirth” that Lynda is having something of a rebirth herself.

Looking fabulous as ever, '70s

One of my all-time favorite comic creators is John Byrne. Most famous for his run on The Uncanny X-Men with writer Chris Claremont, Byrne boasts an epic resume, and that resume includes Wonder Woman.

They say older music, for the first time in history is outselling current music. Supposedly, because it’s so much better than what is being currently made. It makes me wonder if the same thing holds true with comics.  IDW is releasing an “Artist’s Artifact” version of John Byrne’s run on the

Hello, fellow Amazons, Manazons, and Glamazons! Wonder Woman Wednesday became Wonder Woman Tuesday as Lynda Carter received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, April 3, at 11:30 a.m. in Los Angeles.

Of course, I needn’t remind you that Lynda is the most iconic version of Wonder Woman that I believe we have ever had, and that is how most people know her and how most people know Wonder Woman. Of course, there’s more to Lynda than that. She’s an actress, model, beauty queen, award-winning voice-over actress, and talented jazz singer! (I’ve seen her twice!) I think it’s easy to agree that it was Lynda who really brought the character to life, giving us a loving, compassionate Wonder Woman with a great heart, undeniable beauty, and feminine strength.

When I was a little, bright-eyed boy in the Midwest, I had dream to go to Los Angeles some day, become a wildly rich and famous actor, win an Oscar (The acceptance speech has been written for years!), and receive my coveted star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Well, I did move to Los Angeles at least. The rest is still sorting itself out.
