Wonder Woman Wednesday

Wonder Woman Wednesday (126)

Warning! Spoilers below!

In my review for Bombshells #1 last week, I lamented the absence of Wonder Woman from what I thought was going to be a Batwoman-centric tale. The Gods of Olympus must have heard my prayers, as Wonder Woman takes center stage in the latest installment of Bombshells.

Welcome, fellow Amazons, to another thrilling installment of Wonder Woman Wednesday. This week, we take a decidedly introspective look at Wonder Woman. Why do we love her so? What is it about the amazing Amazon that continues to inspire us 75 years after William Moulton Marston created her? What instills Wonder in our heart? Why are there legion of "Wonder Disciples?" Cult? Obsession? Religion? Let's take a look, shall we, at the Zen of Wonder Woman.

Famed comics writer Grant Morrison raised a small stink recently when talking about his long-awaited, forthcoming Wonder Woman: Earth One original graphic novel, which is beautifully illustrated by Yanick Paquette.  The OGN is part of a series of DC graphic novels offering "fresh," "modern" takes on some of their most iconic characters. Superman and Batman have already had the treatment, naturally. So much for ladies first, but I guess Morrison's tome is so epic that Rome, or in this case Paradise Island, wasn't built in a day.

By now, we've all seen trailer for Batman V Superman which was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. If you aren't one of the 23 million-plus views that happened over 2 days, consider yourself "spoiler" warned.

This is the week that geeks all over have been waiting for. This is the week that Comic-Con takes over the San Diego Convention Center. Cosplayers will "cos," gamers will "game,"  SDCC Exclusives will "exclude"- yet very few actual comic books will be found at the biggest comic book convention in the country, but that's another story entirely.

Welcome back to another exciting edition of Wonder Woman Wednesday! The 1981 cult classic, Mommie Dearest, starring Faye Dunaway as "not so Mother of the year Joan Crawford," has been on my mind lately, so I thought this week we would explore the extremely complex mother/daughter relationship between Diana and her mother, dead yet again Queen Hippolyta.

Last week here at Wonder Woman Wednesday, we talked about the iconic nature of Wonder Woman's star-spangled panties. Hot on the heels of my blog, the most recent issue of Wonder Woman was released under the watchful eye of the writer/artist, husband/wife team of David and Meredith Finch. Ahem . . . The most recent issue debuted a new costume, because no one demanded it. Diana, a badass Amazon, is now covered from head to toe in a horribly designed, aesthetically unappealing bastardization of the iconic outfit that endeared legions of fans in the 1940s.

Welcome back to another week of Wonder Woman Wednesday. This week, I invite you to show us your underalls as we discuss Diana's star-spangled panties. Really? Indeed.

I recently wrote a blog about the "character assassination" of The Scarlet Witch, putting her in with a group of good characters who seem to get the shaft over and over again for seemingly no good reason.The subject of this week's Wonder Woman Wednesday, Donna Troy, is definitely a member of that club.

With all of the buzz, speculation, and anticipation for the forthcoming Wonder Woman feature film, you can be sure we'll be keeping a watchful eye here at
Wonder Woman Wednesday as news unfolds. I mean, it doesn't even come out 'till 2017, but it's never too early to start buzzing when it comes to Wonder Woman, especially when this is, unbelievably, the first crack the Amazon Princess has had at the big screen.
