The bad news is that the excellent digital-first series, Sensation Conics, starring Wonder Woman has come to an end. The good news is that last week saw the release of the new, digital-first mini series, The Legend of Wonder Woman, by Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon.
The series promises to be a re-imagining of Wonder Woman's origin. Here we go again. It seems as if fans are still reeling from the bastardization of Wonder Woman's origin for the New 52. I, for one, liked Brian Azzarello's take on WW but looked at it as more of an "Elseworlds" tale that just happened to take place in the character's monthly continuity.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

The first thing that struck me as I was watching this week’s episode of DS9 was that the crew really gets put on trial a lot. Back in Season One, Dax went on trial for something Curzon supposedly did, and in Season Two, O’Brien got thrown into the Stalinist nightmare of the Cardassian justice system. Now, it’s Worf’s turn. With all this going on, you’d think Sisko would have a legal expert sent over from the Federation, and I accidentally might have just pitched CBS’s new Star Trek series.
It's somewhat hard to imagine that November 7th marked the 40th anniversary of the Wonder Woman television series starring Lynda Carter that first aired in 1975, especially considering Carter is as beautiful today as she was when she first donned the satin tights four decades ago.

Happy Friday, everyone! In this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, Fanboy Comics would like to highlight a wonderful art installation called "The Hero Within: Imagination and Identity" that is currently on display at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center in Columbus, OH. Joining with amazing artists with varying disabilities from ARC Industries-West and -South, Arts Administrator Geoffrey Martin and a staff of talented instructors and administrators together transformed the Cultural Arts Center's Main Gallery into a gigantic game board, with whimsical floor installations making stations along a path to adventure. Attendees of the installation are able to contemplate their own inner hero and secret identity while appreciating the creativity of individuals working past a variety of disabilities. In the following interview, I chat with Martin regarding the inspiration for "The Hero Within," the incredible efforts by all of the artists involved with the project, the many events and activities provided by the Cultural Arts Center, and more!

Federation officers are not supposed to interfere with the internal affairs of other cultures. That’s not quite the Prime Directive, but it’s pretty close, and certainly a related concept. It’s a good policy to have when Starfleet is zooming around the galaxy in spaceships that basically have access to magic. I’m not joking -- the holodeck, replicators, and transporters all might as well be acts of gods, even for relatively advanced races.
