Wonder Woman Wednesday

Wonder Woman Wednesday (105)

Now that I've gotten your attention with a salacious headline (Hey, it's hard out there for a pimp!), let me explain what I'm talking about, Willis. According to DC Comics' solicitations, Sensation Comics is coming to an end in December. Sensation being, of course, DC's brilliant, digital-first series starring Wonder Woman.

*Correction: I was quickly ripped a new one today in Wonder Woman Wednesday by the people who rightly called me out on the fact that it was Donfeld and not Bob Mackie who designed the costume for the '70s Wonder Woman TV series. I also removed the possibly misconstrued Bruce Jenner joke. I'm not transphobic ; I just think she's an a--hole. So, for those of you who are very non-Wonder Woman and ugly in your thoughts and actions, here is the new, hyper-edited, P.C. version of Wonder Woman Wednesday. I hope it meets with your approval, although I will never know as those who are quick to condemn seldom relinquish a compliment. "Thank you" very much.

In 2013, DC Comics and Cartoon Network joined forces to introduce cartoon shorts that would be played in between shows during their block of DC Comics-themed Saturday morning cartoons. And, it was awesome!

Hola, Wonder Woman Wednesday Warriors!

Words don't spoil me now! (In other words, spoilers below!)

"Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life

Greetings, fellow Amazons. Welcome to another thrill-seeking edition of Wonder Woman Wednesday.

A while back, I interviewed Ethan Van Sciver about his work on the new Wonder Woman digital first series, Sensation Comics. Sensation was, and continues to be, one of the comics I look forward to the most. It has an open story frame and allows creators to do different takes on everyone's favorite heroine, Wonder Woman. Last week's Sensation #47 contained the third part of a three-chapter story pitting Wonder Woman against Superwoman written by Barbara Randall Kesel entitled "Besties." I've always loved the character of Superwoman and was thrilled to see her go up against Diana for this awesome tale.

Welcome to another week of Wonder Woman Wednesday. One of the great things about being a Wonder Woman fan is meeting others that are as passionate about Wonder Woman as you are. This week we are offering something a little different.

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.
