Wonder Woman Wednesday

Wonder Woman Wednesday (155)

Today marks the release of DC Comics' Wonder Woman Rebirth # 1, a day Wonder Woman fans have been waiting for for a long time.

Greetings, fellow Amazons!  This week's topic is on a super cool, if not macabre, Wonder Woman collectible from toy maker Mighty Jaxx.

I guess I hadn't realized until I joined certain Wonder Woman discussions groups on Facebook - No, not that there ARE Wonder Woman discussion groups - I was surprised by a certain topic of debate. That topic being whether or not Wonder Woman should be wielding a sword.

"It's the right stuff for superheroes."

Apparently, that was the simple pitch that recently departed writer/artist Darwyn Cooke supplied for his runaway hit, New Frontier, the maxi-series featuring the Justice League in perhaps their most genuine, symbolic, and meaningful forms.

Merciful Minerva! I can barely believe it's already May. The steam from the buzz that Wonder Woman stirred up from her debut in BVS doesn't seem to be going anywhere, as May turns out to be a busy month for the Wonder-verse.

"A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear." - Marilyn Monroe

An ironic quote from one of the most iconic beauties of our time. She was always seen wearing makeup, but she was equally gorgeous without it.

Welcome, fellow Amazons! As everyone knows, DC Comics' company-redefining event, "Rebirth," begins this summer. One of the most highly anticipated books getting the "Rebirth" treatment is everyone's favorite Amazon Princess, Wonder Woman.

When I was little, I was a huge Muppets fan (and still am). I think Wonder Woman may have been the only thing I liked just a little bit more. Imagine my delight when Lynda Carter/Wonder Woman was the celebrity guest on an episode of The Muppet Show dedicated to superheroes.

Hola! Greetings, fellow Amazons! I hope you're ready. We have a real treat for you this week! An interview with Wonder Woman: Earth One artist Yanick Paquette. He graciously agreed to a phone interview with me last Friday while he cooked dinner. (I'm still kicking myself for not asking him what he was preparing.)

Okay, Wonder fans.  Admitedly, I gave a rather trite review of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in last week's Wonder Woman Wednesday column.  To be honest, I was kind of at a loss. I not only wanted to like the movie, I wanted to LOVE it. Sadly, I was a little disappointed.
