Why 1984? Due to the popularity of the heavily '80s-themed and influenced Stranger Things, the '80s are all the rage again. They tried to come back before, but I was more hesitant. I guess now that I’m a few years older, I’m more nostalgic this time around. Not to mention I’m a sucker for anything hot pink!
Happy 4th of July, Wonder peeps! I hope everyone is having a great time celebrating our country’s independence. As our rights and freedoms continue to be threatened on a daily basis, it’s a good time to reflect on what it really means to be an American.

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
